From today's Wall Street Journal:

Louisiana Lawmakers Aim To Cope With Political Fallout
Rep. Baker of Baton Rouge is overheard telling lobbyists: "We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans. We couldn't do it, but God did."

Baker explains later he didn't intend flippancy but has long wanted to improve low-income housing.

Tracy Van Slyke, a former publisher of In These Times, is the project director for The Media Consortium.
