I obviously wrote the previous post as satire....but it got me thinking.
I don't know about the rest of you....but I feel incredibly frustrated with our city's leadership and their utter failure on so many fronts, violent crime being the most obvious.
The question becomes....what can we do about it.
The blog community is obviously outraged, as is I supsect, the community in general. In the same week Nagin and Riley are publicly stating that we're making progress....we have almost twice as many New Orleanians murdered than American soldiers in Iraq. (ht/Loki)
It's not enough that we're being lied to by our national leader...Nagin's empty rhetoric on our battle against crime echoes Bush's empty rhetoric on our war against terrorism.
I think I may have come up with a way to get Nagin's attention and force him to answer to this. I think we should start an online campaign to warn tourists "DO NOT COME TO NEW ORLEANS: YOU MAY BE KILLED". If we could get some national press with the effort, it would send a clear message to the country how dangerous our city is and possibly force Nagin to answer to the problem.
With carnival coming up...the last thing Nagin needs is bad press. I want to force him to take responsibilty for this nightmare.
