It’s an unusual Saturday in Debrisville. We actually know where C Ray is: he’s in Central City hobnobbing with some of Stacy Head’s constituents. I passed: it’s still summer and if I want to take in the hot air I’ll step outside. But on a normal day we have no clue as to where the Exploding Pie Tour will lead Mayor Happy Feet. That’s where a new (to me) web site comes in: wheresnagin.com. Its mission is to track C Ray’s whereabouts and point out things around town that need his attention while he’s hangin’ with Jesse, Anderson, A, l Beavis and his other boys.
The web site is the brain child of a new resident Jeff Rosenfeld whose fiancee teaches at my alma mater Tulane Law School. Jeff has the odd notion that our Mayor in the immortal words of BTO should be “takin’ care of business” instead of tooling around the country playing celebrity global village idiot. There was a blurb about the site in today’s Picayune. Here’s the money quote:
“Rosenfeld said he was inspired to create it after his attempts to alert City Hall to potholes and other small problems were unsuccessful. “I found these Web links that go to dead ends and phone numbers that don’t get answered ” Rosenfeld said. “And as I’m looking at all the work that needs to be done I was noticing that the mayor’s been giving speeches all around the country.”
The crappy City web site is of course the legacy of former Chief Clone Greg Meffert who was too busy being a bureaucratic dilettante to do his job. Hmm sounds like C Ray except for the bureaucrat part. To paraphrase the philosophers Lol Creme and Eric Stewart C Ray is “like a gourmet in a skid row diner a fitting menu for a dilettante.”
Anyway I think we should support Jeff in his attempt to document the Exploding Pie Tour. Check out his web site and let him in on any C Ray sightings.
