The Essence of Leadership

"I don't want to see anybody do anymore ... press conferences. Put a moratorium on press conferences. Don't do another press conference until the resources are in this city.
New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, in a radio interview with WWL-AM radio

Mayor, I admire your Desire T-shirt you were wearing today when you greeted the president. However, venting your frustration by cutting off communication is not in the character of a true leader. Your people need you now, and you refuse to talk to them.
