One year ago I commented about the co-existence of oil and fisheries in my home state of Louisiana. This year I share an article that seems to cut right through to the true status of the recovery. Many times I've driven that stretch along Bayou Lafourche (once for the state high school football championship -- we lost) and to Grand Isle. You can't help but see the signs peddling fresh fish, crab, shrimp and oysters.
If is true that the signs, and fishermen, are disappearing and dolphins are dying by the hundreds ... it is truly a sad day. My only hope is that we are only seeing a short term impact and this area of the Gulf Coast will recover within the next couple of years. It is too painful to think that it won't!
