C. Ray Nagin, Mouthmook

Check out Jeffrey's story of an encounter he witnessed between a pleasant and helpful local Wal-Mart cashier and some good-spirited Hurricane Ike evacuees from Texas. It made me angry to think that C. Ray Nagin's abject foolishness could potentially (and very likely) turn even honest, genuine, down home, New Orleans hospitality into a source of frustration and anger for visitors to our fair city. I mean, really, how sad is it that C. Ray Nagin, even indirectly, can make the best of us come off as unwitting fools, and the best in us seem complicit in his incompetence.
