|C. Ray Crazy Mouth, Part I|
Of course, common sense not being so common, some believe we’ve somehow “progressed” past this kind of thing in 21st century America. Those that do probably never considered if they would set up for life (financially and otherwise) themselves, their loved ones, and their descendents if they had the power to do so, even if it meant others (whom they will never meet) might have to suffer. Conceivably, only saints and idiots wouldn’t.
Is such a plot probable? No. But is it far-fetched? Hardly.
To set the record straight—C. Ray is off the mark when he speaks of a plot of this scope in the present tense when that ship would have already sailed. Indeed, that ship would have been ready to leave port a long time before Katrina provided a most favorable wind, and most likely it would have pushed off the night before the Big One pushed in.
As impotent figureheads, mayors of New Orleans have long been tools of the city’s real powerbrokers, wealthy individuals (often bankers) and cabals whose plans have been enacted—sooner or later—whether or not the mayors have played along nicely. By the time a person in C. Ray’s position catches wind of such a plan, by the time he is let in on even the most trivial particulars of it, his being let in is only a formality, much like his being let into office.
And when C. Ray points to the thousands of displaced New Orleanians who don’t have the means to return home and the insurmountable hurdles set before those who do as evidence of an ongoing plot, he is really pointing to the tangible products of mechanisms put into place long before the storm made landfall and the levees failed—that is, if ever such a plot existed.
If it did, and that’s a big if, it’s already been executed. There “is” no plot; it’s a fait accompli.
