When did Fall become such a big deal? Did I miss a memo?
1) Ray Nagin is still a moron, and somehow got re-elected. The man can’t seem to open his mouth without pissing someone off. (The Chocolate City speech and the Ground Zero/hole-in-the-ground comment come to mind) This guy is just a disaster as a mayor, but somehow he just keeps chugging along.
2) The media is DYING for another Katrina to happen.If a strong wind comes along, they are quick to jump to “Could this build in to the next Katrina?” They couldn’t have reminded the public any more if they tried that the current storm, Ernesto, was coming to life around the same time as Katrina. I wouldn’t mind so much if they didn’t sound so much like they were drooling for a bad storm. It wouldn’t bother me so much if they didn’t seem to be rooting for it to happen.
To all those effected though, my heart still goes out to you.
