Wow! I Agree with Couhig!

Adrastos did a nice job covering this morning’s Nagin absurdity (somehow, I knew he would), but wanted to weigh in a little bit.

What gets me is Couhig’s at least implied point:  Who’s the “they” and how can the pull this off?  If anything, “they” would rather make New Orleans a black ghetto.  Do “they” want poor black New Orleanians in their neighborhoods?  If anything, “they” would conspire to keep New Orleans black.

What pisses me off the most about Nagin’s comments (aside from the alarmism that they generate) is that they create a straw man for the real shame of the government’s response.  Yes, we were treated badly, and the government screwed our city, and I do believe that much of this is because the people who live here are a lower priority.  But that doesn’t mean that there’s a plot afoot to change the demographics.  It’s our demographics that allow “them” to save a few bucks.

Finally, Ray, golden boy or not, you need Landrieu’s help.  You need EVERYONE’s help, so please stop alienating yourself and us.

    I found as I was reading the paper this morning that I wanted to see what Adrastos had to say about this issue.

    Thanks, o deluded Readers. Btw, Hamm or is that Hawk? I saw much of the Kansas game and they look berry, berry good.
