Ray Nagin Travels to Cuba

I just read a really interesting article about our fine mayor, Ray Nagin, having travelled to Cuba to learn about how they handle hurricanes and what New Orleans can learn. It caught me by surprise that the mayor of New Orleans would travel to a country shrouded in so much controversy, to learn about hurricane prepardness despite the fact that Cuba has much less resources to deal with hurricance than the US does. Either way, it was a very interesting, Latino-New Orleans specific article. Read it here.

On the contrary, the article makes clear that Cuba has a very important resource: excellent disaster preparedness and responsiveness.
