scarecrow, i think i’ll miss you most of all.

This morning the city’s website was shut off for non payment. This afternoon it came back on just in time to unveil Mayor Nagin’s official portrait.

The caption reads, in part: “Mayor Nagin’s one-of-a-kind portrait reflects the distinct legacy he will leave in history.”

That sounds about right.

It’s these moments of surreal irony that I will miss the most. Other mayors may have been more competent or more honest or more hard working or more, well, more of the good stuff — but none will be funnier than you, Dear Sea-Ray.

 Fare thee well, old friend.
