Update on Nagin Foot-in-Mouth

Ray Nagin apologizes for his idiotic remark, shows lack of thoughtfulness:

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin says he's sorry he used the term "hole in the ground" to describe the World Trade Center site. "I wish I would have basically said that it was an undeveloped site, which it is," he said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press.

I think someone should explain to him the difference between "undeveloped" and "destroyed".

To be clear here, lets look at this one more time. To Nagin, a hole in the ground = sacred ground:
He said he was sorry to the families of those who died on Sept. 11, 2001, and believe (sic) the World Trade Center site is sacred ground.
