James Gill: Graves shows why lawsuit is needed
~So what else is new? Oil and gas executives must have spent many hours congratulating themselves on how easy it is to take Louisiana for a ride and having a good laugh at our expense. They will have many more opportunities to do so once Jindal has made sure the levee board lawsuit is junked and perpetuated the myth that they are our benefactors because we need their jobs and their taxes.
They need our oil and gas even more, as their fabulous profits attest. Those profits would have been much reduced had they not been allowed to renege on their legal obligation to backfill obsolete canals and otherwise repair the damage they have done to the wetlands. It has evidently proven cheaper to buy politicians.
