I'm not saying it isn't true, but I keep seeing all these threads that make it sound like everyone down here is sick and/or dying. Those of us who live here wonder what all this is about. I don't know anyone sick, people I know who live in Grand Isle (right on the coast) aren't sick....this is being way exaggereted. Sure, those who had DIRECT contact (cleanup crews etc) might be sick, but it is not a "plague". I know a LOT of people, and those people know a lot of people, and there is not one person sick........if it were a plague SOMEONE would be sick in that huge group. Most of these people live in Grande Isle and Cocodrie (right on the coast), and none are sick. The concern here is the environment and the methane being released (methane eruptions)....and the fishing industry.
