Governor Blanco: "Hey Culligan Man!"

Today Governor Kathleen Babineaux Blanco unveiled her disaster relief plan at a press conference, held in her office in Baton Rouge. The comprehensive five-year plan is designed to restore air and water quality in New Orleans and environs ravaged by hurricane Katrina.

In the proposal made jointly with Mayor Ray Nigan, Sharper Image will be the prime contractor for air purification and disease prevention. The prime water contractor for drainage pumping, levee reconstruction, and water purification will be The Culligan Man .

Blanco is applying for $4.5 billion in federal funds for the construction of twin Quadra Towers to house the massive Ionic Breeze Purifiers developed by the Sharper Image, Inc. As part of the development package, Sharper Image has guaranteed that all residents of New Orleans will sleep better at night, regardless of race, and wake up feeling more rested.

Blanco said she and her staff of experts have been working on this plan since taking office, and its imminent release is the reason she first refused Bush's urging to call up the National Guard.

Mayor Nigan was in Las Vegas with the New Orleans Police, and could not be reached for comment.
