Re: “Where's the Catch?

As a life long resident of Louisiana I can only hope that the state government can put together and execute the best possible plan using the brightest minds without bureaucracy, and save Louisiana's vast coastal regions. I hear lots of things but see little action. It is painful to see our Federal Government to turn their head as Americans are being gouged with artificially inflated gasoline prices. It is frustrating to see the major financial institutions receive 700 billion dollars in recovery funding for making poor decisions while those of us who are strongly independent, hard working, and place little burden to the system continue to suffer.

Despite the 4 major storms in 3 years, sailing gas prices, economic recession I still believe that anything is possible. It will only make things tougher to accomplish, however this should be viewed as a greater challenge. I believe within this state there are people bright enough to repair many years of damage, we just need a receptive government in all phases who will set aside egos, listen, and execute.

Prior to the construction of the Mississippi River levee system annual flooding would lasts approximately 90 days Anywhere from 4-6 sediments were deposited. If you go all the way back to 1929 and average 5 inches per year for 90 years would roughly equate to 35 feet of sediment that have been wasted.

As citizens of this state we need to get involved, and pay closer attention to those who are currently in office. We need to know who does not value the peoples' best interest and STOP REELECTING THEM.

The Louisiana seafood industry is a multi-billion dollar industry being bled from both ends. I am not fond of imported seafood. Our pride, our heritage, our way of life, dissolving away into the gulf.
