I cruised on the triumph the week of the spill, then spent 5 days sight seeing in new orleans. I watched on the t v how they were ready READY to burn the spill while it was still out to sea. all they were waiting for was the government approval...which never came. I guess the wet lands are worth giving up on according to the government.
we will all suffer from the lack of response.
and I fear that the Port of New Orleans may have to eventually be shut down.
