Do yourself a favor and read this interview with New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin. Just take ten minutes out of whatever you’re doing right now and listen in. I heard it this morning and it’s been echoing in my head all day.
The best thing to do is listen to the feed while reading the transcript (the transcript picks up at 2:20 into the mp3 feed).
Feel free to call me out if you found that it wasn’t worth your time.
