A quote from New Orleans Mayor

Ray Nagin, mayor of New Orleans, had this to say about a week after the great New Orleans flood:


Don't tell me 40,000 people are coming here. They're not here. Its too doggone late. Now get off your *** and lets do something and lets fix the biggest *** crisis in the history of this country


He has a point. As Americans throughout the country mobilize, gather food and water, and send support down to Louisiana one can't help but wonder why its not already there. I have no doubt that if Hollywood had burned down, the cargo jets would have flown, the trucks would have gone rolling and they would have omlettes for breakfast.
