Quotes of the Week 

  "It's the greatest time in the history of our city, at least as long as I've been alive." Harry Connick Jr., to the Associated Press, Feb. 7, 2010

  "I seroconverted to New Orleanian when I went from Jazz Fest to Mardi Gras." Harry Shearer, on Twitter (@letwits)

  "There's been a concerted effort to minimize my accomplishments." — Mayor Ray Nagin to interviewer Michele Norris, in a March interview for Essence magazine. Asked about the city's police and tech departments being under federal investigation, Nagin said: "There was no corruption under my watch. I've only had one instance where there was a mention about anything corrupt, and that was an indictment, not a conviction, where a former employee may have improperly used a credit card. But if you're talking about the previous administration's indictments, that happened before I got here."
