    I have actually always been in favor of offshore drilling. At the moment, I'm not so sure. Hopefully disaster for the Gulf Shoreline can be averted...

    I don't think you will find too many folks around here against offshore drilling! Remember, the wellhead is now at 5,000 feet below sea level. This is a new challenege and much will be learned from this experience. If the submarines can't get the value shut today, they may have the dome in place by late tomorrow. The dome would allow them to pump directly from the dome to a ship.

    I am still in favor of drilling at this point

    the music is great but thats where it ends.
    Next concert {or movie or entertainment event or whatever} that I go to I sure hope there will be a mentor present to "ENLIGHTEN" me as to the political {or religious or personal or whatever leanings} of the entertainers.

    That is real important to judge the entertainment value of the performance; and I'm sure would greatly enhance the experience.

    I also feel it would be great if shows like "Meet the Press" would critique Dick Cheney, Nancy Pelosi or whatever guest on their guitar pickin and singin chops.

    I guess if they allow more coastal drilling, we'll be seeing a lot more black labs?

    Seriously, I'm glad to hear Cocodrie will be spared, not that anywhere else is more deserving, but Cocodrie holds a place in my heart.

    For the others here who haven't had the privilege and wonderful experience of fishing, hunting, or just enjoying raw, unspoiled nature down there , Cocodrie is WAY down on the delta, where few people wander. Those who do, enjoy some of the best damn surf fishing anywhere in the world. You will still occasionally see shacks with people living in them, with no roads, no cars....just pirogues.

    At least of one of these burns up and sinks, it won't cause a mess all over the coast.

    Stu Shearer has built a financial empire with his fishing services down in Cocodrie. Stu has more power than the head of the parish(county) and calls most of the shots down there.

    Dulac, which is just down the road is just as you described. Use to be a great place to shoot ducks before the U S Army Corp. Of Engineers got a hold of it and destroyed the marsh!
