Default Mr.Lover of New Orleans Louisiana

You were not the only one affected by Katrina, I was also affected in Alabama, Mobile to be exact. We had our own fair share of flooding and distress. It is my opinion that the President of the United States is well aware of Florida, Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi in regards to proper evacuation plans. He will not pull a Bush if an incident like Katrina happens again. First Florida needs the beaches and the oil spill will stop people going to the beaches and hotels, motels, and parks will be affected. Louisiana has its fishing industry and gaming, casino, and tourism industry which it need to keep afloat. Alabama has also its fishing industry and casino gaming industry it needs to keep abreast. And Mississippi has the great river road it need to stay pristine. I think the President is aware of the intricacies of each state, if not I am sure the delegates from each of those states will.

Default Actually, I have been to most throughout my lifetime...

Thats one thing about age, you have more experience under your belt. I am sure those places have changed alot since the early sixties but when I went there I still remember those places. I don't live to far off either and I grew up along the gulf coast. I haven't been to mardi gras since the late eighties and it wasnt so popular as it is now, i would imagine. Back then girls were taking off more than just their shirts, they or we were much more liberal especially since it was President Reagan making sure of it! Bush Sr. was more conservative and tried to take more of our rights away during those times. And back in 69 Nixon really didn't care about alot of things that were gong on in the country and we all know why. Something to due with water and maybe a gate and maybe things turned scandalous. Hmm, cant put the pieces together...

Default I just heard a Christmas Greeting from BP on the radio...

Would the hurricane turn into a swirling and spinning wall of oil? wow, the nets that they have in place would be obsolete and I'm pretty sure the boats would leave the area, at least that would be the smart thing. I am sure BP did not have this in mind during hurricane season! I feel really bad for all the local fishermen and local wildlife that is being affected by the oil spill. Hopefully Bonnie calms down and we can all go back to doing whatever we were doing...

any ideas on how to keep the palms from toppling over, or at least prevent any future palm trees from toppling over? any ideas would be great.
The BP person talking about Bp and all the good that they have done for the community. reminding us they are still working hard for those affected by the oil spill. You could totally tell that it was forced or acted out, that the person who was speaking was supposedly a shrimp farmer. The Shrimp farmer goes on to say that he appreciates BP and all the help they have given him.

Default Record breaking oil spill.... $4 billion dollars from BP

Its about time they used some of that oil money to help out the environment and I hope they stick it to them hard. Especially for the workers that died on the platform due to negligence from BP administrators... I thought I read something like 14 counts of homicide or something to that effect.
