Well, no fear, dear... Aside from the yearly fish die-offs, it's still the same olde place. Tons of trees, swamp, water and mosquitoes that get big
enough to carry off a horse... ok, maybe not a horse. A large dog perhaps.
La is still it's beautiful muggy, humid, summer smoldering place of wonder. A place of endless ghost stories, mysterious tales of buried treasure,
and yes... clean beaches. Well, as clean as they have always been. Though, I never saw white beaches here
Golden brown, yes, but never white.
Yet, this cajun world of ours is still beautiful, as of course, beautiful to the people who call it their home. There are still hidden troves of
beauty that the tourists, tourist hunters, beauracrats and idiots alike, havnt found. Now if we can just get rid of all the damned casinos and close
our doors to outside "game" hunters and industry fishers/shrimpers, then perhaps, just perhaps, our native culture can enjoy what we used to own.
Maybe then the people that used to make a decent living, or at least keep themselves and their families fed from the waterways and fields can enjoy
life again. Oh yeah.. that goes for oil rigs too.
Sorry, I can go on for days of what was taken away from the people in the southern part of this once beautiful state.
