There isn't enough trouble in New Orleans, so the mayor manufactures some

After weeks and weeks of waiting, FEMA trailer sites have finally been created in New Orleans. Sounds like good news, doesn't it? It isn't. This is, I know, really hard to believe, but Mayor Ray Nagin and FEMA created them without consulting the New Orleans City Council. Sites such as playgrounds and ball parks were selected, and residents chosen to live in the trailer parks do not come from the neighborhoods in which the parks were set up.

Needless to say, council members are livid. The mayor has apologized.
