I have no problems with how Dr. Blakely depicts our fair city. I actually agree with him for the most part. I only have one request.
Dr. Blakely, New Orleans’s belatedly appointed Hurricane Katrina recovery chief, refers to the city’s racial factions as “a bit like the Shiites and Sunnis,”
I would like to be referred to as something other than the people we are fighting in Iraq. It's bad enough I was a refugee in my own damn country after the storm. Now I am Saddam's cousin. Actually, my neighborhood is being protected by the National Guard so it's kind of accurate.
