About Time

Bratton he is not. New Orleans is a mess because of the same kind of politics that made David Duke a credible force for the governor's race in Louisiana in 1991. And when one-third of the force flies the coop, that says much about the chielf's leadership, and much about the reliability and integrity of the city's police.

One only hopes that a new sheriff is indeed in town. Because these types do nothing to make major cities safe places.

Note to Nagin: if you have a brain and wish to retain your office after your completely crummy performance before during and after Katrina, please follow the Giuliani script. It may be all you have.

CORRECTION:
It was not one-third of the officers of the New Orleans police department that left after the hurricane, but one-sixth, or 250 officers of the formerly 1500 member force.
