Having just returned from six weeks of research in Southern Louisiana, words alone cannot tell the story. Brain and hands are paralyzed. Air, water, land and people are suffering. Injury is visible and pain is palpable. Three proverbial pictures must suffice for now where words cannot.

The music here is used with the permission of Tab Benoit. Those of you who have seen the IMAX presentation on the Louisiana Wetlands will know who he is. Benoit is fighting ferociously for the preservation of the Gulf Coast wetlands and for a way of life that will be lost forever if we do not pull together and do something to heal the water and estuaries.

OpEdNews and COA News will have more on the environmental challenges and heartache in the coming month. Progressive media will tell you the real story of what has happened on the Mississippi Delta.

Meanwhile, reflect on the fact that Congress just approved $3.3 billion for Louisiana recovery and $11 billion for vehicles in Iraq.
