Louisiana Loses Its Boot

quote [ The boot-shaped state isn?t shaped like a boot anymore. That?s why we revised its iconic outline to reflect the truth about a sinking, disappearing place. ]

A bit long but I found it an interesting read.

As long as Louisianans continue to elect climate change deniers and oil company shills, shit will continue to get worse down there.

Kind of a bitter irony that this is the status quo in most of the low-lying coastal states.

They can keep their heads in the sand for only so long. Y'know, because soon all the beaches will be under water.

Sounds like the plan Lex Luthor had for California in the first Superman movie with Christopher Reeve. Has anyone checked if he is still in jail?

Oh yeah, he's still in jail. How the fuck would Lex Luthor ever get out of jail? No way.

Unfortunately for them, it's also the rest of the states and who we send to Congress. It would take some serious federal money to really make a difference.

Sadly, I'm unable to eat a vegan diet because of the surgery. I can't have most vegetables, and rice/quinoa/pastas expand too much in my stomach pouch, so that wouldn't leave much on the table.
