Serious Shit

I wasn't seriously alarmed when I first read the article that I mentioned at the end of the last post, but go back and read it carefully. It's too serious for jokes about the Park Island Gang making the Waste Management execs an offer they couldn't accept -- couldn't resist, didn't realize that Jimmie Woods had more politicians in his pocket than Don Corleone. This could be repeated two or three times over, and for larger amounts of money. I'm not a lawyer, but if the council has "no choice" but to approve the contracts, it will probably all be perfectly legal. Unless somebody can show conspiracy or something.

Comments:
The only good news is that the City Council seems to be waking up.

It seems at least one of the Cynthia's is waking up.
 
What message are we sending? is NOLA open for business or not?
 
Which Cynthia? I've long had a higher opinion of one of the Cynthias than the other, but couldn't quite say why. Well, I could give some pretty good reasons why I don't think much of one, but that would say who it is.
