    WHAT??? They are absolutely liable. Duty to act? Yep. Was harm caused by their actions or lack thereof? yep. Case closed, negligence it is.

    If you take away accountability then there are no checks and balances. I am responsible for my crew. If they do good they get props. If they screw the pooch its my head on the platter and that is how it should be.

    Mr. Nagin was speaking from the Dallas area, where, he told the New Orleans Times-Picayune, he has bought a house for his family and enrolled his young daughter in school.
    I don't see him denying it anywhere. I hope he does move there permanently and takes up a job cleaning floors or something. I wouldn't trust him to manage a McDonalds.

    And yes, I too believe those who bungled this the most should be held liable in whatever was is the most painful.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Check out THIS STORY... You can see him denying it.

    "I have no intentions of moving to Dallas," said Nagin, who has been staying at the Hyatt hotel in downtown New Orleans. "My home is New Orleans."
    His wife and children evacuated to be with family in Dallas. They are renting a home there so the children can be in school and be close to that family. He is not moving to Dallas.

    Default "Admiral" or Mayor?

    Anyway, cozmosis is correct. Apparently his family is temorarily located here in DFW. Actually, it might be better to have him visit his family awhile? After his most recent actions in the affected City, the confusion may return faster than citizens. He has been convinced now not to have people re-occupy impacted areas. But telling the "real" Admiral not to talk to his citizens, is not in the spirit of cooperation.

    If Admiral Allen requests the Army to keep the good folks of New Orleans out until the areas have been declared safe, who do you think the Army is going to listen to?
    I'll take 10 to 1 odds on Allen.
    What I find ironic is that Nagin couldn't get his people out of New Orleans, but by God he can get them back in. Stat!
