The LSU community is reeling after the sudden death Thursday of prominent LSU coastal scientist Gregory Stone.
Stone, who was quoted extensively in many publications internationally after last year's BP oil leak, was the director of the reknowned Wave-Current Information System.
The system is used by many fisherman and scientists to monitor wind, waves and currents off the Louisiana coast.

Today's paper had two different groups reporting the continued existence of oil on the Gulf floor and dead marine life. One article even discussed the methane pumped into the Gulf. All I can say is that I have not been in the Gulf since before the oil spill and it will be a long time until I do. I also do not eat any Gulf seafood. Paranoid ? Maybe, or maybe smart enough to be reading ATS and to not trust government statements of safety !
And they might be fine,.

Well, I have to say that we have eaten gulf shrimp several times, had some just last Sunday. They were delicious. I haven't started growing an extra head or anything... YET!! lol
ETA: My husband has bought oysters like 5 times since January and they are delicious too! I do sincerely hope that there will be no long-term consequences. We have to buy our local seafood 'cause so much of our states economy depends on it!edit on 2/21/11 by jennybee35 because: "splainin why we eatin' them scrimps and oysters!
