If he is talking about Ray Nagin and Mary Landrieu, he is correct. He proclaims the "resilience of city residents". Really? The people who sat around and waited for government to save them? The people who didn't bother to evacuate when told to? I, for one, am as tired as I can be hearing about how horrible Katrina was and how wonderful are the citizens of Ray Nagin's "Chocolate City". The response of local authorities during Katrina was criminal and the stupidity of the citizens before, during and immediately following was beyond the pale.
