From the TP
Nagin is in New York this week, trying to get financial support from nongovernmental groups: Wall Street firms and foundations that might provide loans or grants for a new criminal justice system and the reconstruction of city buildings and other storm-damaged infrastructure, his office said.
...Nagin often complains about how slowly his city gets federal hurricane recovery money, but figures released Thursday show that nearly $600 million is available — if only Nagin would request it.
I think Ray just likes to travel around and forget "all his troubles".
Hope all you assclowns that voted for him are resting well, knowing that you're helping to delay NOLA's recovery.
