"I'd like to have another solution for the citizens ... but I don't know what else we can do at this point," Ray Nagin told a news conference.

How about an election?

Gambling will keep that town on the straight and narrow.

Great way to keep crooks honest.

Once again, brilliant, Nagin.

Given his record, I'd be inclined to do the opposite of whatever Nagin calls for. What a loser.

It's amazing how all these politicians think gambling and State Lotteries are the cure to all their problems. No, they are NOT. What cures problems? Reducing government interference, taxes and regulations. That's it Ray; get the heck out of the way, you corrupt pr*ck.

Gambling?
How about hard work, a firm resolve, a spirit of independence instead? Pride in family and community?

I know, I know.
Handouts from the American taxpayers via the Feds and gambling beats work every time.
Why am I not surprised?

"I'd like to have another solution for the citizens ... but I don't know what else we can do at this point," Ray Nagin told a news conference.

Translation: "With the whole city in shambles, I'm hardly getting any bribes or kickbacks. The phantom police have vanished, and the numbers racket is doing very badly. What else can I do to maintain my accustomed life style and feed my drug habit?"

In that the end justifies the means lets have some prostitution also legalize drugs, gay marriage, abortion on demand all for an indulgence fee.

Just change the name to "New Sodom" - that would be "Ray Ray's" kind of town...

Has any one done a real mental check on this man? I am serious. He is so out of touch with reality! Me thinks he is trying to be the Marion Berry of N.O. - in different ways but just as outrageous. Between him, "baby-fat face Mary Landrieu, and that person pretending to be the State's Governor, those poor people don't stand a chance. Perhaps the United States should make it a territory rather than a state.

Most normal people don't go to New Orleans to do anything...it's far to dangerous.

"New Orleans is struggling to rebound from Hurricane Katrina..."

"I'd like to have another solution for the citizens ... but I don't know what else we can do at this point," Ray Nagin told a news conference.

It's been what, a month? He doesn't know what else he can do? What a spirit of perseverance. Someone's whispering in the good mayors ear.

Detroit held election after election to permit gambling in its city. The voters finally relented. Yeah..gambling can help cities (not).

They need about 30 welfare agents per citizen, the workers can all eat lunch and get their hair done downtown.

This investment in the community will pay dividends to all the stakeholders.

One way to reduce NOLA's susceptibility to floods is to turn it into a landfill.

Typical of Nagin: Grandiose plans with no clue as to how to implement them. As a result, government employees and taxpayers are whipsawed from one scheme to another, all of which cost money and none of which are successfully completed.

Anyone who can't see all the people needing transportation out of the city because all those idle yellow buses are blocking the view is probably not the go to guy when it comes to rebuilding the city.

My dad always said that if you can't afford to lose ... don't gamble.
And if you do gamble and lose, remember the lesson ... and don't gamble.

Seems to me we've been gambling on the whole of New Orleans for some 50 years ... and we've thrown craps.
It's no wonder New Orleans has a bacchanalian time where Sodom,Gamorrah and San FranSicko come together and rape the Al Hirt's of Jazz to rape the taxpayers by promising a good time.

I want to think that America is tired of the partay and eager to reclaim the emerging renewal of the thought processes our founding fathers had and enacted into law and politics, thereby creating a social structure never known on planet Earth before.

God, forgive us and give us another try ... please?

Is Noggin tempting God (Katrina) again? Bring back the Devine Wind again, there are still a few sinners left in New Sodom.

The New Orleans tourist market doesn't support gambling. More than one boat was moved from New Orleans to a more lucrative market. One land casino went bankrupt, and the current one could never be called a success. New Orleans did support some small suburban boats, but they catered to the local blue collar trade.
