Noble Nola Prince sells lemonade to help pelicans ~Kari Dequine
~At first, 4-year-old Jonathan Bush wanted to sell all of his toys to help save the oiled pelicans.
"How about Lemonade?" asked Mom. "YEAH!" responded our Hero.
Faubourg St. John neighbor Jonathan Bush, 4, right, tastes some of his Pelican Aid lemonade to make sure it has the right flavor before serving it Saturday at the corner of Esplanade and Mystery Streets by Fortier Park in New Orleans. Jonathan, 4, says that all proceeds will go to help pelicans recovering at the LSU Veterinary Hospital.

Deepwater Horizon rig explosion came from greed~Jarvis DeBerry

Thanks Jarvis. Greed is a sawed-off shot gun with a wide spread across south Louisiana.
As a very young man I made $800/wk washing dishes on oil rigs in the bayous and Gulf. One summer as a mud bug I made over $1000/wk, often staying out on the rig a few weeks at a time. That was over 20 years ago. I never had any problems with the oil industry, for the most part it was pretty damn clean and definitely safe as you could make swinging around Tons of Steel machinery. So when you use the word Greed to describe peoples' motivations in this disaster, please understand that it could hit anyone no matter their place on the rig. And you are talking about nearly 100% of south Louisiana. The first step in beating any cancer is to face it and look it in the eye.
