Headline blatantly stolen from Schroeder at People Get Ready because its so damn funny.
If you want to answer that rhetorical question, you can contact some of the people on the invitation sponsor list below. Click the image to view it full size and legible. (h/t to Eli of We Could Be Famous). Better yet, I’ve just found that Howie Luvzus has typed up the list of sponsors, and provided the email addresses for some of them. Be sure to join me in dropping them a line.
You should also follow Kevin Allman’s developing story on Gambit’s Blog of New Orleans. Loki of Humid City has also been on top of this, tracking down Jackie Clarkson who has started scuttling away from it like a crab.
I still don’t know whether to laugh or cry over the idea of honoring Nagin with The Award of Distinction for Recovery, Courage and Leadership. What a crock. I want to suggest again, if you haven’t blogged this or called someone in outrage yet, please do so. This sham needs to go the way of the ill-advised “celebration” of the anniversary in August 2006.
