The soon to be unelected Mayor of New Orleans, Ray Nagin, has been quarantined in China due to Swine Flue suspicions. How his trip to China with his wife will help develop the economy of New Orleans I am not sure.
On top of this whenever he is allowed to leave China he will be heading to Australia to make a speech. Why is it politicians across the world treat each other like Royalty?
Sounds like a boondoggle trip to me and probably at the New Orleans' population expense as well.
