The mayor of New Orleans, Ray Nagin, described what is going on in his city late Thursday night on Air America Radio. The gripping interview has the mayor chastising all politicians and their inability to understand the magnitude of the disaster facing his city. He explained that the majority of the people in the city are just looking to survive and are not looters or gang members, as portrayed in newscasts. He said that there are a few “knuckleheads” looting and the rest are drug addicts looking for a fix to “take the edge off.” At the end of the interview, the mayor and the reporter both simply break down into tears.

  1. And this is what we can expect from our King Bush and his cronies.

    Bush partisans went on the offensive. Grover Norquist, the conservative activist with close ties to Karl Rove, blamed the chaos on “looting in a Democratic city run by a Democratic mayor and a Democratic governor.”
    How do they explain Mississippi with a republican govenor??????
