Jaded?

Today's paper reports that the mayor didn't bother to attend a recent crime forum, because he was busy at a fund-raiser, another fund-raiser. If I had read that on my lunch break a few months ago, I would have expected at least 2 or 3 New Orleans bloggers to be all over the story before I had a chance to post. It's possible that I missed somebody, but it doesn't seem to have raised a peep. I hope that says more about the fullness of other bloggers' lives than what's happened to the indignation bar where the mayor is concerned.

While the article does contain one hard to decipher sentence about the Police Chief and the D.A.:
While the two admit communication has been frayed, the actions of their offices -- spewing vitriol back and forth in newspaper editorials and an online message boards -- belie a departmental rift.

It seems that they would like for us to believe that relations between the D.A.'s office and the NOPD are actually quite good. The men and women at Signal 26 don't agree.

Update:
About 12 hours earlier, the term-limited mayor had hosted a $2,500-a-couple fund-raiser that attracted many of the engineers, architects and consultants who hope to land some of that recovery work.

The take from the evening event at the new downtown Harrah's Hotel was "north of $200,000," according to David White, Nagin's campaign treasurer.

If those preliminary numbers are correct, Nagin now has nearly $500,000 in his war chest -- a hefty sum for someone who isn't running for anything. Or is he? link

Just a reminder:
Nagin replied: "I don't need that much money. Something else is going on with that."

Comments:
"While the two admit communication has been frayed, the actions of their offices -- spewing vitriol back and forth in newspaper editorials and an online message boards -- belie a departmental rift."

What the hell!

I think we're looking at a double negative here someplace, myself...one that points to the DA and "No Neck" Riley not being hunkey-dory.
 
Jordan and Riley are so full of shit. They apparently think we're all dumbasses & I am so sick of their spin. All they've "agreed on" is to f**k us by appearing to be working together in an effort to placate us.
