Gambits Clancy DuBos thanking Mayor Nagin? And in a press release from the Mayors Office of Communications, no less?
All of [sic] just said, Yes, thank you, Mr. Mayor, said Clancy DuBos, editor of Gambit Weekly. That was his defining moment right after Katrina because he expressed very bluntly the frustrations of everybody -- black, white, Democratic, Republican -- all New Orleanians who were fed up with the lack of federal response.
Its taken from a CNN profile on Nagin and is part of the networks series "Revealed," which the press release reminds us is, a program that gets under the skin of the worlds brilliant thinkers, creative champions and inspirational leaders.
Not that many would disagree with DuBoss assessment of Nagins Now get off your asses and do something September 2005 radio interview calling for federal aid for our drowning city.
But that was 2005, and the DuBos quote seems a little stale for cherry picking. While the mayors press office isnt Fox News, the press release needs a little balance. How about DuBoss take on the end of Nagins term?
What measure of relief hes feeling pales in comparison to the relief that the citizens are feeling.
Thats better. Now we can focus on the important stuff.
