The Trials Of Mayor Nagin

Ray Nagin, who apparently had any vestige of shame removed surgically, now has shifted the blame over the response to Hurricane Katrina to Governor Blanco.

If his logic is to be understood, the residents of New Orleans should expect and demand accountability from their federal and state officials, but not their local representatives. To what extent is Mayor Nagin willing to admit responsibility for anything? His order for mandatory evacuations was clearly belated, at best, and the plans to use buses and other high-occupancy vehicles to help those without a form of transportation were never implemented. Upon whom can these failures be affixed? I'm sure Mayor Nagin will find someone.
