Mitch Makes the News in New York City

It seems that the New York Times is interested in our upcoming local mayorial election. The Headline is "Racial Divide Tested in New Orleans Vote." The under-headline reads "Race Assumes Central Role in New Orleans Mayor's contest." The article goes on to state that Mitch has a resounding lead, in part due to Senator Murray's dropping out of the race.

My money (literally) is with Mitch Landrieu. I really hope he wins this time. I know the limitations of the powers of a mayor in any city, but I think he will inject a sense of relief among all who have struggled so much to rebuild New Orleans.
