Day 1252: Goodbye, Mr. Cerasoli

Goodbye, Mr. Cerasoli

NOLA.com | New Orleans Inspector General Robert Cerasoli quits post, citing health issues

… Cerasoli grew into a workaholic, obsessing over a job he viewed as crucial, even intrinsic, to the public good. When the stress built to a peak, Cerasoli turned to a unique outlet: volunteering at a suicide hot line.  “I wanted to juxtapose my own pressures with those of people under far more extreme pressure than me, to put my problems into context,” Cerasoli said.

Thanks for coming to Rising Tide, taking the time to address each of our concerns and generally being a mensch. Here’s to your speedy recovery. Cancer is a relentless jerk. When it attacks people like my mother-in-law, my grandma, Karen Gadbois and Cerasoli, I wonder if there is any justice in this world.

We’re toast. Just slap some meat on, dress it up and have us for lunch.

    We are not toast. He deputy and temporary successor is highly qualified, and the law requires a board certified IG. If Nagin and the Cynthia’s try to monkey with the law to “make the job available to local candidates” or any other bogus reason (race), we drive them out of town.
