Nagin’s Performance Timeline…

Filed under: New Orleans — Tags: — Morwen Madrigal @ 7:06 pm

Humid Haney has turned me on to a fairly accurate timeline of Mr. Chocolate City’s actions and inactions during his time as the “Mayor” of New Orleans. Promises made and broken. Pledges reneged upon. Total cluelessness in a time of crisis, and in the aftermath of the Deluge, a more than willingness to funnel much needed funds from N.O. for Big Bid’ness instead of accepting offers that would have generated $$$$ to the City whilst cleaning up one of our biggest probs here Post-Flood.

On Saturday, just go to the polls and say, “C. Ray? NO WAY!”.

‘Nuff said about that one…

Here’s the link:


  1. I support Landrieu, but the time line isn’t entirely fair. On one particular point was when to call the evacuation. I probably knew the storm was coming bofore 99.9% of people. I was checking my weather geek sites as I got ready to go sailing that night, and picked up chatter from a meteorology site tied to a Colorado University saying the models were convering. But the consensus, including the head of the hurricane center, was to wait for the 2nd model run, which came in close to midnight. Nobody had an inkling the storm was coming close to NOLA on Friday, and the NHC wasn’t ready to call it until the middle of the night. Should a mandatory evacuation be called everytime a storm enters the Gul? Should south Florida be evacuated everytime a storm steers north? Should Houston be evacuated?

    I called my sister and mother and everyone I could reach as soon as I saw the afternoon model consensus, but it wasn’t “official”. If the standard for evacuation is set that high, then Florida and Louisiana and Mississippi are over. We won’t be able to sustain an economy.

    My own personal standard is the Mariner’s chart, the 1-2-3 rule. Are we prepared to evacuate Miami and all of South Florida everytime they fall inside the three day cone?

  2. I so wish I could vote in this election. I’ve read every piece of information I can on these two candidates and the more I learn about Nagin, the more scared I get for the future of NOLA if he wins. I’ve got my fingers crossed for y’all!
