The adults step in

Allowing children to resolve their own disputes is all well and good, but sometimes, adult intervention is required.

Gov. Kathleen Blanco brought in a mediator and representatives of the Federal Emergency Management Agency to meet with Nagin and the council members at the governor's home. [...]

"I think we have a general agreement that there will be no more bickering about sites," Nagin said, sitting next to Blanco and council members Cynthia Willard-Lewis and Renee Gill Pratt at the governor's home.

Can't wait to see people start heading home.

Gov. Kathleen Blanco said city and state officials feel they have identified sites for temporary housing in New Orleans for about 40,000 of the almost 47,000 families that have sought a place to live after being swept from New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina.

Thanks, Mom.
