He and Poppy couldn't wait to get back to the great fishing in the French Quarter, just around the corner from his beloved Bourbon Street . . .
When he finally landed, he met with the local politicians, including Mitch Landrieu who had no idea what he was babbling about . . .
And Mayor C. Ray Nagin, who was another of those folks like the kind he'd put in his cabinet a few years back . . .
He also made it a point to get with and reassure the GOPer money-men, including the head of a local shipyard . . .
And later, of course he arranged a meeting to reassure his boys on the Gulf Coast that there was plenty of $$$$ for everyone, and nothing was gonna get away . . .
He need to impress on folks that he was in charge, and things were gonna get done . . .
So they set up a stage for him in Jackson Square in the French Quarter, and in matching blue shirt and background, and with 50K in lights, he assured all of us and the world that New Orleans would get all the help it needed to be restored . . .
