Most of you have seen the images of the oil slicked birds and tarball laden beaches. These images are coming from Grand Isle, LA located on a barrier island of the same name in the Gulf of Mexico.

This piece is for the fisherman their families and the livelihood that the oil companies have stolen from them.
