    We had privatized all our critical services - transit, trash removal, planning, etc. So when disaster struck, they extorted the highest price they could, and gave as little as possible.

    Nagin blew millions on useless tourist attraction and decorative (not) sculptures bought from his friends.  

    This was after decades of the City funding every snake oil 'revenue generator' at the expense of education, infrastructure, citizen services, transit, and worker pensions.

    This boy is Ignorance and this girl is Want. Beware them both, but most of all beware this boy for on his brow I see that written which is Doom.” ― Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
