Mayor Mitch Landrieu never made direct reference to the touchy subject of the New Orleans City Council’s white majority Thursday as he endorsed former Councilwoman Cynthia Willard-Lewis in the April 21 runoff to fill an at-large seat on the city’s legislative panel. But it was clear by what he did say that the thorny issue of race was a key factor in his decision to choose Willard-Lewis, who is black, over her white opponent, Councilwoman Stacy Head.
“I need someone who’s going to be a partner with me to represent all of the people of the city of New Orleans,” Landrieu said to a cheering crowd of more than 100 gathered at the New Orleans Healing Center on St. Claude Avenue.
As a white mayor of a city that is 60 percent black, Landrieu has to walk a fine line in matters of race.

The Nano-Gnomes are constantly working to keep things fresh, and trying to chase off the Nano-Gremlins. Sometimes the Nano-Gnome King has to interdict, interject, intercept, and pretty much fix things that look iffy. | Welcome to 2015 | I hope you continue to find my site useful for finding fresh Louisiana, World, and other news of interest to me personally for one reason or another. Probably bewbs and art.
Let's not forget that the Nano-Gnomes have to be often re-calibrated in their automation processes. They are there so the Nano-Gnome King can attend to real life issues.
If anything I wish upon you in the new year, is love. The Nano-Gnomes will keep the light on for ya, and ya'll come back. Ya hear?

I have a pipe dream.
I dream that there were people who said, 'hey let’s crowd source and buy a TV station.'
We are deluged with the West Coast perspective, we get swamped with the East Coast perspective.
I want the South Coast perspective to be widely promoted.
I would like someone to open up a CNN/FOX type 24-Hour cable news netwrk, and give that South Coast perspective.
I would like to see it happen here in Central Louisiana. #CenLa
Buy my merch, or else don't.
