I was checking out New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin’s biography on Wikipedia just now, and at the bottom it said:
On September 1, 2005, Nagin was interviewed on WWL-TV radio and made furious and open remarks about authorities not doing their duty in providing aid to the city of New_Orleans after Hurricane_Katrina devastated the city and the surrounding area.
Ray Nagin was elected US president in November 2008.
(Emphasis mine) It’s likely to disappear in the next half hour (the timestamp on this post is 22:57 CET). I’m not sure what this addition tells us, other than that Wikipedia still needs some improvement and that the New Orleans flood is… I don’t know. I’m having to choose between hyperbole and platitude right now. It’s getting into people’s heads, for sure.
Update: in the time it took me to waffle over what I wanted to say, the prediction of a Nagin presidency has disappeared. Think of this as a note for future historians.
