    "France can take Treme. The king of Jordan can take the Lower Ninth Ward"

    Those the words of New Orleans mayor, Ray Nagin. The mighty US it appears can't look after its own people under the Bush regime, and because of underfunding, Nwe Orleans has had to look for help overseas. Reuters has this report:

    "We need your undivided attention over the next six months," he said. "We need backup. We need for you to make the words that you spoke in Jackson Square a reality." Nagin was referring to the president's Sept. 15 address to the nation from New Orleans, in which he pledged "we will do what it takes, we will stay as long as it takes" to rebuild. French Transport Minister Dominique Perben, leading the French delegation to a city that was founded by France in 1718, said, "This catastrophe has deeply upset the French people and the French government." France, Perben said through a translator, "wants to be a long-term partner for Louisiana and New Orleans."
