Re: “Ray Nagin: the Blur

Great article Clancy. C. Ray has always been a self-absorbed narcissist. Think back to his first run for Mayor when he inflated his resume by claiming to be a CPA. Early in term one he diverted everyones attention to his failings by focusing attention on M. Morial's administration, all the while he was involved in his own scheming and corrupt behavior. As I recall, his son was arrested in NYC for a credit card scam ~ I thought at the time "how does the Mayor's son do something like that?" Unfortunately the old adage "the apple doesn't fall to far from the tree" seems to apply here. While I never voted for C. Ray, because he was trained in a discipline that looks backward (accounting) rather than a visionary leader, I did have hopes that he would prove me wrong. I guess in many ways he has. Accountants keep records by dotting i and crossing t's. Apparently C. Ray's not a good accountant either, he doesn't write things down and can't remember from one day to the next. What a sad man and a terrible disappointment for the city who really wanted him to succeed.
