    Ray Nagin, the mayor of New Orleans,
    wasasked his views on Roe vs. Wade.


    He said he didn't care how people got
    back to their houses.

    HAHA... I heard the same joke, except it was Prez. Bush and getting out of New Orleans.

    I hated that joke when it was about Bush's interest in the aftermath of Katrina and I hate it still.

    You didn't.

    I realize it wasn't your intent.

    To quote the late great Sir Peter Ustinov:

    "Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious".

    Knowing a joke is in poor taste but that it will get a reaction is frequently a productive means of causing others to stop mid-step and actually think about matters more seriously (on a conscious level or otherwise), because they let down their emotional defences to a comic one-liner in a way they never would for a serious news report. IMHO.

    I can just hear that unique voice of
    his Alex...he was always the epitome
    of droll.
