Nagin mooches credit for planning process
What "ball" are you referring to Ray Ray? The one that residents themselves brought to the game? I'm just asking, because I don't recall your involvement in this process at all. Showing up to associate yourself with a process after neighborhood groups took matters into their own hands without your leadership, guidance, or even your input, does not make you eligible for credit.
"They (the neighborhoods) have moved forward and taken the ball and run with it," said Nagin. "Now we have a unified planning process that's come in line with the LRA and the Greater New Orleans foundation, supported by the Rockefeller Foundation."
1) A scab or freeloader who comes to your house uninvited and overstays his welcome (for more than about 3 days) and proceeds to eat all your food, stink up your bathroom, take all your drugs and just generally leech all the blood from your body during their stay.
2) A sponge. A schnorrer. A person who shows up every evening at dinner time. A person who wants other people to pay his way.
3) Someone who wants something for free .. someone who takes and takes but doesn't give back.
P.S.: We're still wondering if you were thinking about finishing that 100-day plan, or if you were just going to throw in the towel for the next four years. Because if you're throwing in the towel, we'd be happy to redo the election and have Mitch be the mayor!
