Well, seems like a good time to start a thread on Hurricane Gustav.
I must say that I have followed a few press conferences of New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin - and he is a very straight shooter. Has now told potential looters that they will go 'directly to Angola' prison - in the general population so that Bubba can have his way with them.
This press conference goes for seven minutes, but is the announcement of the mandatory evacuation.
I noticed President Bush speaking on the television this morning and he just sounded like a shadow or fake imitation of Ray Nagin.
Ray Nagin for President!
