Our Newest Op Ed
- By R.A. Hawkins
I wasn't too surprised to hear Nagin's recent comments regarding a 'Chocolate City'. He is of course back peddling and trying to explain himself to no avail. The entire political system in Louisiana is now showing itself for what it is again. Nagin's comments have to have alienated just about every friend he managed to make earlier in the aftermath of Katrina. He has taken the blame for that which he managed to mismanage. Now he has to take the blame for being the new Earl Butz. For those of you who don't remember, he made a few comments about how to make the blacks happy or shall I say, how to appease them. There was another rather stupid error on his part when he was talking about the Pope. The Pope had just made comments about not using birth control. In an off record comment he said something like 'He No-a Play-a dah Game... He no-a make-a dah rules.' He trusted a reporter and made the comment off the record, another sign of bad judgment. It was all over the news the next day.
Nagin has almost nothing left of the bridge he built to DC. There is little left but a crater where that bridge used to be, a crater with a certain special nuclear glow to it. The people in Slidell are having trouble going to sleep at night because of that glow. It’s like the sun never sets there any more.
Quite a few people are still talking about the damage, or shall we say the mismanagement, of the levees. They are looking for someone to blame for those levees failing. I am personally watching the next big levee blame game issue as it happens bit by bit each and every day. I have now dubbed the west bound I-10 bridge over Lake Pontchartrain 'The Bridge to Eternity' Yes it is official - I have actually dubbed something. What an important day this is. (Well maybe to me it is)..................
