Spill

This is incredibly disheartening. This was shaping up to be a damn fine year, perhaps the year our region truly got back on its feet after the storm. But instead it looks like we'll once again be left holding the bag on the aftermath of, to paraphrase, a man-made frakking catastrophe of epic proportions.*

* This creeping scale feels familiar: a seemingly modest misfortune gradually revealing itself as a massive debacle. And the shoddy federal response is feeling familiar too.

    Disheartening to say the least! The Gulf Coast can not seem to catch a break.
