        Weird.

        I received one of those "Breaking News" banners from CNN.com

        And now it's gone.

        Maybe he changed his mind.

        It did seem a little too Guiliani-esque for him.

          You are about 10 days too late, Skeptic

          Is this some kind of joke?

          Asked then if he would talk to his players about the situation, he said, “They know me, and that’s where the trust comes in.

            Honestly, no.

            It's been downgraded now to "a forced removal of holdouts."

            That's the first time CNN's sent me what appears to be old news.

            Strange indeed.

              Ah, I see what you are talking about now. This is a change from when they said earlier that people can stay but they would not get free food and water.

              Mayor orders forced removal of all in city
              (New Orleans, LA, Sept. 6, 2005) Mayor Nagin today released a declaration of Emergency Order for the City of New Orleans. The declaration reads as follows:

              Whereas, the presence of individuals not specifically engaged by the City, State or U.S. Government to assist in the remediation and recovery effort would distract, impede, or divert essential resources from the recover effort.

              Now, therefore, I as the Mayor of the City of New Orleans, pursuant to the authority granted by Louisiana Revised Statutes 29:727 and: 730.2, do hereby promulgate and issue the following mandatory evacuation order, which shall supercede the Order issued by me on August 28, 2005, which shall remain in effect for thirty days from this date, unless extended by my order or earlier terminated by my order:

              Civil District Court District Court for the Parish of Orleans, State of Louisiana City of New Orleans

              Promulgation of Emergency Order

              Whereas, Hurricane Katrina has caused catastrophic damage to the City of New Orleans, including, without limitation, several breaches in the levee system, loss of power and water service and the collapse and or loss of structural integrity of roadways, building and other structures;

              Whereas, the above referenced damage necessitates an immediate and unimpeded recovery effort by the City, the State of Louisiana and the Untied States Government;

              Effective immediately, any public safety officer within the boundaries of the Parish of Orleans, including, without limitation, members of the New Orleans, including, without limitation, members of the New Orleans Police Department, the New Orleans Fire Department, the National Guard and any branch of the U.S. Military, is hereby instructed and authorized to compel the evacuation of all persons from the City of New Orleans, regardless of whether such persons are on private property or do not desire to leave, unless such persons are determined by such public safety officers to be specifically engaged by the City, the State or the U. S. Government in providing assistance in the remediation and recovery effort.

              Those persons who are currently located in Algiers on the West Bank side of Orleans Parish are hereby excepted from this Order.

              The City Attorney is hereby directed to file this Order with the Clerk of Court.

              Mayor C. Ray Nagin

                  Well...if the "thread-starter" had bothered to post more information instead of just making a statement...maybe we'd know these facts...

                  So it's difficult to discern whether the poster is communicating fact, or just making a post to stir things up...

                  Because we have no way to ascertain the validity of his post...

                      I've just been subpoenaed to appear at the fact-finding hearing.

                      No dates given, but I'll give you a full report after I testify.

                      It'll be fun to meet Nagin though.

                      I wonder if he's as dynamic in person.

                      I hope his hotel accommodations are OK in D.C.

                      I wouldn't want to piss off that fucker.

                      After all, he's a details guy.

                        They'll be taken to a jail near the astrodome.

                          Well it makes his order pretty ridiculous if they could not arrest those idiots.

                            But it conveys decisiveness.

                            And that counts for something, doesn't it?
