As a recently retired state worker I can assure you that more of this will continue because the present governor has effectively "frozen" most hiring. Which means when a staff member retires, dies, or leaves state service for another job, he/she is not allowed to be replaced, and the staff remaining get to do that person's work......often meaning overtime.

Why is he not visiting the Palestinian territories or (at least) meeting with any Palestinian officials? Afraid he'll hear a different side to the story?

What a shame. New Orleans never had a stronger, better advocate than Mr. Nagin. So what if he skimmed some money here & there.......ALL politicians do that. George W. Bush on the other hand couldn't (& didn't) care that the citizens of New Orleans were drowning during Katrina....he was too obsessed with Iraq and its petrodollars.
