Mayor: New Orleans Will Seek Aid from Other Nations

New Orleans - Shortcomings in aid from the US
government are making New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin
look to other nations for help in rebuilding his
hurricane-damaged city.

Nagin, who has hosted a steady stream of foreign
dignitaries since Hurricane Katrina hit in late
August, says he may seek international assistance
because U.S. aid has not been sufficient to get
the city back on its feet.

The US is broke. Soon it won't have the money to
pay for toothpicks for the troops without doing
more increasingly elaborate shell games, so why
would any mayor expect help from the Federal
version of government?

Shhh. Apparently Nagin doesn't know that money
doesn't grow on taxpayers after all.

Full report.
