NEW ORLEANS -- As Hurricane Ike barreled toward Texas last week, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin invited evacuees to his town, saying he wanted to return the favor for all the help folks in the Lone Star State had given people driven out by Hurricane Katrina.
Nagin urged those fleeing Ike to just request the "Mayor Ray Nagin special" when they booked their rooms.
On Saturday, after people asking for the special got only baffled looks, Nagin issued a statement saying the comment was a joking remark and just "my attempt to lighten the mood."
