Train wreck

Evidently, Ray Nagin, the Hizzoner of New Orleans, has decided that pissing off his constituents isn't sufficient for one week, now he has decided to piss off CNN. This article details it.
CNN: Mayor's emergency, Bourbon House restaurant

Mayor Nagin ducked out of his interview scheduled with Anderson Cooper on CNN last night to respond to his "chocolate" comments, reportedly for an emergency as he tells Cooper. CNN reporter Sean Callebs tracked him down having dinner in the French Quarter during the time the show was on the air.
No, it's not enough that during a Martin Luther King day speech, he goes after Christians, and people who live Uptown. His remarks seem to alienate everyone who lives in New Orleans. That's not enough at all. Now, he ducks out on the media.

This is part of the transcript.
Now, they didn't say what the emergency was. And we're not here to judge a person's emergencies. But, last we checked, the mayor was eating dinner at a restaurant called Bourbon House on the corner of Bourbon Street.
I swear, it is like watching a train wreck. You know it is going to be bloody, but you just can't turn your eyes away.
