BEFORE YOU RAG ON NAGIN
Dana, who lives and blogs in Slidell, LA, and who survived Katrina, would like people to give Nagin a chance.
Let me try to explain Nagin's re-election: The first thing you have to do is go back to the days before Katrina. Ray Nagin was a conservative businessman who was actually a very good mayor for New Orleans. He was fighting the in-grained corruption that has plagued the city for decades. It was a hard fight, but slowly he was gaining ground….I would have loved to seen a change, but, given the choices, I think Nagin was the lesser of the two evils.
This is good news for the city of New Orleans: I have often said that a lot of the problems that faced Nagin over the last four years were created by the City Council.
