    Oh but the first words out of Nagin’s mouth redgarding the impending storm were that he is "concerned about the emotional stress on the city’s citizens". WTF? Baffled, since his complete lack of leadershipover the last two years makes us all totally nuts. How about he starts passing out his salary to citizens to help pay for gas and hotels. Great job, Richard.
