Nagin Suspends Return

As the song goes, the cheese now stands alone. The EPA is the only agency/person left saying there is not a significant problem if people return to New Orleans. We will have to wait to see if Nagin stays sensible after Hurrricane Rita passes.

UPDATE: We have been told by people who saw the whole press conference that one of the last questions to the Mayor was whether the environment had something to do with his decision. Apparently he said something to the effect of that the first report he got from the EPA said everything was safe, but he recently got a second report that looked like lawyers wrote it to excuse the EPA from liability for their projections. He seemed pissed to say the least. If anyone can get us a source on this, it would be appreciated.
