Mayor says New Orleans now bankrupt

Sep. 13, 2005 at 9:02AM

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin says the hurricane-devastated city is bankrupt and is scrambling for loans to pay its employees through the end of the year.
"Technically today we're out of cash," Nagin told reporters in Baton Rouge. "The city is bankrupt ... We have no money."
He said the city spent its last available cash last week on city employee payroll and was seeking bank loans, federal assistance and other means of financing to continue paying its bills and staff, the New Orleans Times Picayune reported Tuesday.
However, Nagin was emphatic state and federal officials would not railroad through city reconstruction until it had passed city muster.
"I don't want anybody outside of New Orleans planning nothing as it relates to how we're going to rebuild this city without us signing off on it," Nagin said.

Nagin should get a cottage with Brown and be done with his political life. Every time I see him all I can picture is a monkey flailing his arms about in hopes of receiving a banana.

In the proud tradition of NOLA politics Mayor Nagin wants his piece of the pie.

I suspect that, in the proud tradition of LA politics, he may have already taken it.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

Using double negatives, or not using them I should say, doesn't require a TelePrompTer. It's simple English.
