UPDATE: OK some context. Willie B had been sleeping soundly through Mitt’s –the Pope ain’t the boss of me–speech when he was awakened by my laughter atJeffrey’s take on Nagin’s explanation of his not voting…
In other words, he’s saying that while he doesn’t have the facts
available regarding this recent event from his own life, this one
report he didn’t read sure makes him suspicious that the vote he didn’t

Babineaux Blanco, Mayor C. Ray Nagin, the New Orleans City Council and
more than 100 business, faith-based, civic and human rights

President Bush accidentally gave out the wrong phone number for the new
“Hope Now Hotline” set up by his administration.
UPDATE:Anyone who dialed 1-800-995-HOPE did not
reach the mortgage hotline but instead contacted the Freedom Christian
Academy — a Texas-based group that provides Christian education home
