Two good articles today about the oil spill

Here and here.

The second article;e has been modified to remove the following which it contained this AM:

“The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers has rejected the state’s plan to build rock dikes in the passes leading into Barataria Bay, an area known for fishing and wildlife. As expected, Governor Jindal is furious, saying, ““Only a government bureaucrat would say rocks are more harmful to our water than oil.”

The Advocate has the story this morning as well as a report of oil now moving into Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans.

The best quote in The Advocate’s piece comes from Grand Isle Mayor David Camardelle who said,

“I say, let’s go. If we can come up with the money, let’s bypass the federal government. Let’s protect our people.”

It is recorded and discussed here.
