Must-hear interview with Ray Nagin (audio)

Here's a must-hear MP3 audio of an amazingly passionate and brutally candid interview with the mayor of New Orleans Ray Nagin that blasts the lack of federal response. There is so much in here -- drug angle, parallels with Iraq -- but it's truly worth a listen. Thanks to "bettsoff" who posted the link in the comments section.

Update: AlteNet is now hosting the audio to ensure a reliable connection. Listen now.
