A Ray of Sanity

Admiral Nimiz said of the Marines fighting on Iwo Jima :

"...uncommon valor was a common virtue."
On the filipside it can be said of the New Orleans City Coucil that "common sense is uncommon".

Now it appears that it takes a natural disaster of epic proportions to interject a little sanity into city government as District A Councilman Jay Batt is spearheading the effort to eliminate the residency requirement for NOPD officers.

Kudos to Councilman Batt.

UPDATE: The city council this afternoon voted to suspend the restriction for a period of three years for all city employees.
