Okay. Now this dude, I mean, bless his heart.
For all his good intentions, he seems to suffer from a severe case of Mouth/Ass Syndrome. This is when the words that come out of your mouth, make you look like an ass. Mouth/Ass Syndrome can be very damaging, especially when you engage in M.A.S. in public places. Admittedly I have been known to suffer from mouth/ass syndrome on occasion. But in my own defense, I'm just some writer chick, not a public political figure in charge of a historically black city that has been ravaged by one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. History and whom people are looking at under a microscope to assess my competence and leadership skills. Nor did I(thank God) make some questionable comments about black folks being punished by God during a really speech on (of all days) Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday.
So, I'm kinda torn on this one, but ultimately....Ray Nagin *sigh*
Take him away!
(and somebody talk to this man, please, for the love of God..)
Here's my girl JA's response to the Nagin fallout.
