Listen to a terrific interview with Dave Alvin on Marc Maron's podcast WTF.

Quite a post here Lars. I did like the information on using the Design Binder. It is setimhong that I tend to pass over just like the design library. I am going to request that our IT department Whitelist your blog so I can your blog at work. Now time to cut and paste your post of wisdom into my TiddlyWiki for reference. Thanks Lars, JRU_1962

was right, I still think. If people don't like his exact woidnrg, fine, he can deal with that and that was my point. What's important is his criticism of many of the same things you list above. But do you call your employers, essentially, buffoons in public and expect not to get grief for it? As I would tell a student, his word choice was poor. He needs to own it and move the fuck on. How about spelling out in exact terms what's wrong and embarrassing the right people, the obstacles? He's got that power. He could do that. Could have done that. What links NO's problems is opaqueness and an overly compartmentalized view of the world. He could've called a fart a fart.I do not think, though, that Blakely is the first person at all to say shit here is broken. Our problems didn't start when the levees breached. Will Blakely set things right? No. He's one person. And he's not in charge. He works for Nagin. If all the powers that be do not work with him, he'll take his ball and go home. Or be told to go home.And all these problems work for somebody.
