Distinguished Speakers Series: Ray Nagin

When: Wed., Feb. 9, 7 p.m. 2011

Former New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin has been through a lot, but he still may deserve the title of Most Tone-Deaf U.S. Politician. In 2006, when racial tensions were boiling, he said, "This city will be a majority African-American city. It's the way God wants it to be." When asked in 2007 why the post-Katrina murder rate was so high, he said, "It's not good for us, but it also keeps the New Orleans brand out there." At 7 tonight, he'll probably address neither topic in a free (and likely wildly optimistic) talk, titled "New Orleans Revival: Rainbow After the Storm," at the Occhiato University Center (2200 Bonforte Blvd., Pueblo, colostate-pueblo.edu) on the Colorado State University-Pueblo campus. — Bryce Crawford
