Hmmm . . . Craig McKnight rings a bell.

Does he post here? SURE DOES!  Craig_McK

He’s the guy who said (about Examiner reporter), Deborah Dupre:  “Looks like dupee the worst reporter is at it again with her BS just like this site is totally BS——why can you not post the truth istead of BS?????”

AND he has a lot of other useless things to say here. Face Book people can read the entry for Aug. 22 about him here.

“. . . . my mind just can’t comprehend a literal “pile of rubble” sitting thousands of feet down in to the earth. For that pile of rubble to form, means something else had to have been displaced, and as that pile of rubble moves in to the cavern, if this is truly what is happening, then there is yet another void being left where that pile of rubble was taking up space. Otherwise, we can only assume things are just shifting around willy nilly down there.”

  1. Interesting links, sometimes it seems like the negative responses in the comments section come from some mindless robot who attempt to scare you away with disgusting insults totally unrelated to the topic at hand.

  2. I am surprised by the lack of debate about the video of the ‘slough in’. I made a comment about the way the trees sank and was pretty much dismissed apart from fcf. I feel intrusive just commenting from so far away but I must labour the point. The trees didn’t ‘fall’ or ‘tumble’ as reported. They sank vertically. To my mind this could only happen if there was a sheer drop adjacent to the trees before they broke away from the edge. I suspect that your ‘witches hat’ is a witches cauldron. Perhaps Mr. Boudreaux could use his depth tape to check out the gradient as well as the centre? By the way, an american science team this year came with their AUV equipment to help with the survey of a volcanic lake near here. It took them two weeks to do a complete 3D map of the lake bed http://www.gns.cri.nz/Home/Learning/Science-Topics/Volcanoes/Secrets-of-Rotomahana/Background-Info

    • Very good point! The vertical drop was, I think, pointed out by a reader here. The tallness of the trees and the fact they dropped straight down does prove a cauldron.
      Either the 3-D imagery was just made-up art or a huge slide under Lake FUBAR took place since the 3-D map was put out.
      I cannot prove it, but believe ‘Guest’ who wrote The Worst Case Scenario Unfolds. He said many more agencies were working on the problem than we are being told and it is much worse than we are being told.

      • The trees did not exactly “sink” or “drop” they were sucked down with fantastic force. When a huge canopy tipped sideways into the water at the edge, it was yanked back up out of the water and pulled straight down, like a toilet bowl flush would do. Review the last tree tops to go down if you don’t know what I mean.

      • one of the media outlets replayed it backward and forward.
        Anyway .. it doesn’t look like those trees are on a shallow slope at all.

    • …. article about the lake. Also they never used a submersible with camera there. Also they keep the surveillance video (live cam) secret.

  3. Hello I made an addendum to that video where I made some mistakes, The second is spot on, I just got stuck in a rabbit hole of information for a while. Sorry about the Bad information at first.

  4. So I am getting majorly hated on by BCS for asking the exact same Questions they did, and they were trolled by him as well.. Made a 3rd installment where i just look over the info, yes my videos suck. https://vimeo.com/73195613
    READ THIS Thread Craig Trolls and Deletes, and I am now hated and banned from BCS facebook for asking same stuff, just I got some answers and some facts. An electrician in a company heavily involved in the Oil and Gas industry is a BIG Oil Guy, particularly when acting in his manner.

    Company hits gas at “higher pressure” near Louisiana sinkhole — Floor is still rising in salt cavern
    Title: Vent wells burning gas from sinkhole areaSource: The AdvocateAuthor: DAVID J. MITCHELLDate: November 17, 2012h/t Amonymous tip

    Jo Celle Now, I was questioning what this “floor rising”meant. Did it mean something under the cavern was pushing the cavern up, or did they mean as more debris is entering the cavern, the depth was being reduced.They cleared it up, and are indeed talking about the debris coming in and making the depth more shallow.
    November 18, 2012 at 4:09pm
    Jo Celle What i don’t get, is where is all this debris coming from? It can’t be the sinkhole since it is getting more shallow, instead of deeper, which is what I would think it would be getting, if it’s losing bottom soil.
    November 18, 2012 at 4:11pm
    Jo Celle That’s the second time I’ve heard it explained that way, and my mind just can’t comprehend a literal “pile of rubble” sitting thousands of feet down in to the earth. For that pile of rubble to form, means something else had to have been displaced, and as that pile of rubble moves in to the cavern, if this is truly what is happening, then there is yet another void being left where that pile of rubble was taking up space. Otherwise, we can only assume things are just shifting around willy nilly down there.
    November 18, 2012 at 4:43pm · 3
    Jo Celle Well, the experts are saying what is in the cavern is the sinkhole contents. Then they say they don’t know what it is. Then they say it’s a clay like consistency of stuff. I can’t picture this rubble, because before the cavern collapsed, and before the sinkhole, there should not have been any voids…..any open spaces for any rubble to move around. The comparison of a landslide on a mountain is understandable because it is an open space. The earth should not have had any open spaces. I know how big then cavern is already. Maybe my question needs to be this. Once the cavern blew out, the sinkhole formed and dropped down and wernt in to the cavern, right? So why would there be a rubble pile down lower, and what was displaced when that rubble pile was formed? I get to a point where I think I understand it, then get confused again. Would LOVE to see an animated account of what happened when it all took place.
    November 18, 2012 at 6:08pm · 1
    Jo Celle I’m not getting your point.I do get that there is a lot more in the cavern that can be accounted for, if that’s it.
    November 18, 2012 at 6:29pm · 2
    Jo Celle What do you think that sinkhole lookedlike when it formed? Would there have been projectilewater shooting up? Did the sinkhole contents go in to the cavern first, or did the brine shoot up in to the sinkhole first?
    November 18, 2012 at 6:56pm · 2
    Michelle Deville Mouton So nice to read all of this Craig! Finally someone who knows what they are talking about. I think you should go to the next meeting and ask the questions! Last I heard the Hum was involved and possibly the Chris or the Marg. If this is coming up to the surface, that leaves much more void space than just accounting for the sediment alone. I found where on August 23rd a request was made to the EPA for chemical and radiological surveys over the sinkhole. The report was printed and ready on August 25th, it is 26 pages long. I suspect since we have seen nothing like this done again, they are withholding information. I can’t find any reason the sinkhole floor rising would be a good thing. There must be a seismic survey that has been done over the last few weeks so that we can see what the salt has done. My brother is pretty high up at one of the strategic reserves and I will be trying to contact him for some answers, IF he is able to discuss it.
    November 18, 2012 at 7:40pm · 3
    Jo Celle Now, this is why some of us stay confused about things. You say the sinkhole contents didn’tgo in to the cavern. Dr Hecox said it did. And that’s what they are basing the difference in the amount of additional material on. Sinkhole volume versus what’sin the cavern.
    November 18, 2012 at 8:50pm
    Jo Celle Why would you want to be out of earshot of others?

    November 18, 2012 at 9:52pm · 1
    Jo Celle Excuse me Craig, but everyone has voiced to Mr Hecox how much we appreciate his honesty and that he seems to be THE only one being truthful with us, whether he really is or not. You are insinuating that we are not getting answers because we aren’t asking the questions properly? And whether it’s what he thinks,verus what the group thinks doesn’t matter. I would be VERY pissed if i found out he told someone in Texas something that was with held from ANYone in the community because it was considered a “need to know” thing. And I am quite sure Mr Hecox has ventured out on a limb all by himself quite a few times already in telling us some of the things he HAS told us. Seriously, I am just appalled that you would not only think this way, but post it. Need to know my ass.

I can’t imagine just how many phone calls and emails they must be getting not only from people around here,but from people all over in other states. I’ve seen Craig say numerous times he has called and emailed.

    Bayou Corne Sinkhole So basically what your saying is that you will post the replies you get except for the one/ones you dont think we should see?? How the hell does that make you any better than the rest of them? In my honest opinion you are now only contributing to the censorship if thats the way you intend to handle things. Who are you to decide what we should and should not see? And if you think by any stretch of the imagination that the people are not and have not voiced their concerns…you are sadly mistaken sir. You are not the only one that knows how to contact officials, and are not the only one that has done so. The impression you are giving me is that because you have some background in the subject you seem to think that you have more authority to get answers than the residents who are living this situation. Whether you, or anyone else thinks we can can handle the complexity of the subjects discussed, we still deserve the answers. Those that do not understand can do some research and educate themselves! And if your theory is only a theory and has no FACTS, then why are you posting them on this page that I have repeatedly said is for FACTS. I do appreciate your determination and interest on this situation, but I will not tolerate you treating the people like they are children that cannot handle the things that your “superior” brain can. Keep your theories to yourself if you do not plan to share any and all information that you get related to them. If there are things that you know but are not saying then, IMHO you are no better than a shill cover up artist. If you wish to continue posting on this page then I suggest that you start acting like these people reading your comments are your equals.

    Bayou Corne Sinkhole It will loosen because the pressure from the water as the sub dives is pressing on the outside of the sub.
    November 19, 2012 at 11:15am
    Deby Tomlin-Heilig Craig, do you think that none of us don’t already know who answers the phones here? Seriously, you are not doing anything, any of us that LIVE here have not already tried? We go to the meetings, some go to the Commander Center personally, Deborah Dupre’ has done articles, and came to a meeting, even got a boat tour of the situation, to bring awareness. There is Petitions, and the list goes on. And, People here know some of them by being a local, too. We’ve been living this for months, now. Please, Do not judge us.
    November 19, 2012 at 11:16am
    Bayou Corne Sinkhole Also, if you were to tie the string taut while its deep in the water, it would snap when the sub rose to the surface due to the pressure lessening and the sub walls expanding. I may not have used the exact terms as Im not educated in submarines but the concept is simple physics.

    Deby Tomlin-Heilig Well,…Geee,..next time I’m on a Submarine,…I’m gonna try that trick!!

    Bayou Corne Sinkhole This is what I’ve been thinking since they said they were messing with the cavern contents. Granted that they needed to do some cleanup but its just seemed to me like pouring salt in an open wound (no pun intended on the “salt”), and that it would just further aggravate the situation. Whether the news is bad or not these people need to know any information related to this situation.
    November 19, 2012 at 12:04pm · 2
    Jo Celle I think probably she wants the bad news to be heard if it’s facts, and not conjecture stated as facts over what the experts are saying, nor put to us like we are not being told these things because we don’t “need to know”. They have people from all over the world working on this. Do you not believe that someone else among these experts understand the physics as you do and has contemplated this scenario, and absolute if they don’t have concrete evidence that this IS what is going to happen then there is no reason to panick the people?
    November 19, 2012 at 12:07pm · 2
    Jo Celle Umm,Craig….I am the one that videod that meeting. I am the one speaking up and insisting on videoing. I agree with Alicia, and don’t understand why you think we don’t know these things you speak of. Personally, I don’t think we need to understand the physics of what happens with strings and submarines, and regardless of whether we do understand them or not is no reason to with hold information from us. In fact, I often feel that at the meetings the truth is covered up by trying and succeeding in bogging us down with the technicalities, rather than just tell us flat out in laymans terms, if need to, what has happened and what we can expect will happen. The last meeting could have been cut in half had all the charts, numbers and percentages been omiited. I don’t think the average person cares to know just how many cubic feet of gas is being flared per nanosecond. Anything that technical and detailed is indeed what the separate agency blog sites are for.

    Your logic is totally escaping me this morning. The theory has been all along that all of this happened at once. Cavern blow out…material rushing in to cavern….material rushing out of cavern…..sinkhole. In other words, cavern blow out was cause of sinkhole. Immediate reaction. Now you are saying material rushed in to the cavern LONG before the sinkhole? And you talk about material “falling down” and collecting in a pile of rubble down there like all that was just open space. How could anything “fall” when there is no open space? Your line of logic defies everything we’ve been told, and truthfully, are able to conclude ourselves with simple common sense.
    November 19, 2012 at 12:09pm · 2
    Jo Celle In conclusion, you have IMO joined the ranks of the fear mongers, and you just may be doing more harm than good here. You certainly are confusing the situation for sure, by disputing everything we have been made to understand of what is happening.
    November 19, 2012 at 12:10pm · 2
    Bayou Corne Sinkhole I don’t see the big secret. I’ve been here from the beginning and have followed all of this. Pressure changes underground aren’t that hard to understand when you’ve thoroughly followed all of this. Anyone who knows whats going on here, and has sat back and thought about it could have easily come to this conclusion, as I did. My point is that at this point it’s just theory. If you get a reply on this verifying this is in fact whats going on then please share that reply with us so that we may keep up to date with the facts.
    November 19, 2012 at 12:15pm · 1
    Jo Celle It’s NOT a big secret. We know the cavern is damaged. We also know that no matter how many times they pump brine in there and remove the hydrocarbons it will continue to lose pressure because it has a HOLE in it, right? As I said, some of this is common sense. They’ve said from day one if the cavern was damaged, nothing can be done, and that the sinkhole WILL grow.
    November 19, 2012 at 12:25pm · 2
    Bayou Corne Sinkhole Craig you do not have to stop commenting. I just dont want you to act like your the only one that knows or understands anything. The way you come across is like your talking down to people. I just want you to understand that we are not children, can handle the truth, and dont appreciate people openly stating that they are hiding or intend to hide things from us.
    November 19, 2012 at 12:35pm · 2
    Jo Celle On the contrary. I have told you I have no problem with how you “break things down”. There is a difference in explaining something so that everyone understands it, versus talking to us like we are all idiots, and/or have no knowledge of how things work with the ASK process or who answers the phone, or that we aren’t watching the videos, or asking questions the right way. Also to the contrary, I DO except facts the officials state. What I don’t accept, is you disputing those facts, and undermining our understanding of those facts with your conjecture. So, if you want to pitch a fit and take your toys and go home, then that’s your choice. Had I been Alicia and you threw that “test” question at me, I would have told you to bite me. But that’sjust the way I roll…….

    Craig McKnight Years ago shorty after getting out of the USMC air wing, iwork for a bussiness that tapped (metered) it the city’s raw water(water and raw antural gas from one of the city wells), daily one of us had to go outside and vent raw natural gas from the top of a storage tank. I only worked there a few months before starting college. About a year after I quit I read in our local paper at a bussiness just up the street from I use to work a man walked into the restroom there and there was a explosion–he latter died from burns on his body due to raw natural gas explosion. That happened in Angleton Texas about 1973 at Ford Contractors

    Craig McKnight some well water will have disolved methane in it–for the well that has it a valve needs to be put on the tank about 1/2 way up the tank. With the pump off open the valve and drain water until gas starts coming out, when it stops close valve and leave door to pump house open before restarting the pump again.If there is a very high volume of gas in the water you might have to do this daily. Just remember NO SMOKING and let the build air out each and every time you vent the gas–NO turning on or off light switch or anything else that will spark–cell phone is safe to use but not a cordless.

This is only part of the reason I do not trust what he says as I’v seen more that is just plain BS that he could had found out was false info if he had done just a little research on it discounting the BS sites that are easy to spot most of the time. He does post some good info but does post a lot of BS.

    Craig McKnight I also have been following since the bubbling first hit the net. i already knew a lot about salt domes and the caverns before this happened. In the county I live in there are at least three salt domes and two sulpher domes. One salt dome is owned by the US govt and they are storing crude there, one ot he other is being used to store gases in their liquid state by two chemical companies. the other salt dome has a town on top of it, Damon, TX interesting place and highest in the county.

    Bayou Corne Sinkhole Well, finally you mentioned concern for the peoples health! At times the ” vapors” and stinch from that hole, was so bad, it burned your eyes, sinuses, throat, caused coughing, earaches, headaches, dizziness, nausea,and more. Believe me, I live less that two miles from it!

    Jo Celle Sorry….but I am going to stand behind Dupre on this one. I live right on Bayou Corne, and the water is dead. The fish kill we had after Issac was not bad enough to account for what we are seeing now, as far as life in the water. No snakes, no gators, no fish. Occasional turtle. I haven’t seen a mullet jump for well over a month now…..something that we used to see constantly, even right after Issac. Our bayou IS poisoned. The aerial photos show a direct path from the sinkhole to Bayou Corne with only one boon to contain the oil and other toxins, and no telling how much is filtering through the trees and swamp in to the bayou. I can’t see how it’s possible to tell by photos just how much gas is coming up. Some areas it is like boiling water.

    Jo Celle The post I responded to is now gone, so my post doesn’t make a lot of sense as to why I said what I said, tho I still feel the same way.

    Bayou Corne Sinkhole Im not sure which one that was because i havent deleted anyones comments. It must have been deleted by the person who posted it. Sorry about that, but regardless its still good to hear from more locals.

    Jo Celle Craig…I am a strong believer of owning your words. Just because I disagree with you doesn’t mean what you say isn’t right, or that you don’t have the right to express your opinion. I may be wrong. I HOPE I am wrong about the bayous being poisoned.
    November 17, 2012 at 12:16pm · 4
    Jo Celle It was just suggested to me that the problem could be the salinity levels are what is driving the marine life off…..seeing how the salt would get past the booms. That makes sense too.
    November 17, 2012 at 12:45pm · 1
    Jo Celle I’m serious. There is NO activity in the bayou for weeks now.No jumping, surfacing. Nothing. Haven’t seen a snake for 2 months.
    November 17, 2012 at 12:46pm · 2
    Bayou Corne Sinkhole @ Jo, O, I know the post you are talking about now, too. I replied to it too. But I know what it said, who it was, also. So, maybe he did not like where the topic was going.
    November 17, 2012 at 4:19pm
    Bayou Corne Sinkhole The people that live here, and have for years know the “feel” of this place. I myself have been here long enough to know that the mullet not jumping (which hurt like hell if they hit you in the boat….just take my word on that one) is very out of the ordinary. Snakes, turtles, and gators you dont see AS MUCH during cooler months because they are cold blooded, but you still see them around here even in the winter. Plus it hasnt been cold long enough to make the water itself cold. I drove past lake Verret today and the mullet are jumping there.

    Bayou Corne Sinkhole I’ve never known anywhere around here to be known as a “dead zone” (except the occasional brief periods after hurricanes). This area has always been FULL of life. Its part of the reason I moved here.
    November 17, 2012 at 7:24pm · 5
    Bayou Corne Sinkhole Very good suggestion. Why this has not been done already (without people having to request it) is beyond me. Also, I hope you did not think I was being rude with the mullet and area wildlife comment. This was not my intention. I was only trying to explain to those that may not know. Thank you again for your comments Craig.
    November 17, 2012 at 10:52pm · 2
    Jo Celle BCS is right. It hasn’t been near cold enough yet for the gators or snakes to go in to hibernation….especially for 2 months now. I fish a lot, and talk to other fishermen, and am hearing the same thing. Yet the fish in the spillway are biting like crazy, and they had the same fish kill we did after Issac. It’s a dead zone alright, but not because of low oxygen. The water has had time to recoup from that, with the rain we’ve had since the storm. We are n ot talking the Gulf, Craig….but fresh water. Not even brackish water, although that might be what it’s turning in to.
    November 17, 2012 at 11:15pm · 5
    Jo Celle it certainly won’t hurt to ask them if they have run those tests, especially the salinity test.
    November 17, 2012 at 11:55pm · 2
    Jo Celle Actually, I will go to the command center Monday and ask John Boudreaux. It may be 3 weeks before we have another meeting.
    November 17, 2012 at 11:56pm · 3
    Bayou Corne Sinkhole It just seemed fishy is all, but the fact that you continued to post on this thread makes me believe it wasn’t intended to be “fishy”.
    November 18, 2012 at 10:25am · 1
    Millie LaPrairie @ Craig,..I gotta say Craig, you know a lot of stuff. that’s for sure, And, your very long-winded, and that your comments are many, so, a little ‘clean up” more often wouldn’t hurt. Just saying,…
    November 18, 2012 at 1:52pm
    Jo Celle Craig….you posted this above: “The gases that are coming off the crude oil at the sinkhole would be heavier than air then with little or no wind they would go to lowest elevation which is the surface of the water, doing that they would cut the water off from the normal air most likely even in some rains—the dissolved oxygen in the waters needs to be sampled due to this”…………..So, if this is what’s happening, then yes, the bayou IS being posioned by the crude/gases….whatever. I was just about to tell you that IMO, there was no reason to have the oxygen levels tested because nothing has happened to deplete the oxygen content in the water. That does happen after strong hurricanes because of the bottom rolling over, basically, and I understand the process of the decaying leaves and vegetation, but that period should have passed. Now, what you are saying about the gases coming off crude is a whole different story.
    November 18, 2012 at 3:29pm
    Jo Celle The fish kill was primarily Shad and catfish. I saw very few bream, crappie, bass and mullets.
    November 18, 2012 at 3:30pm
    Jo Celle A few days before Isaac, I caught 50 bull bream from my pier through one day of fishing. I have not caught a fish from the pier since that day.
    November 18, 2012 at 3:31pm
    Deby Tomlin-Heilig You are right Jo, It’s not just the marine life, there are less birds, frogs croaking, Owls hooting at night, etc.
    November 18, 2012 at 3:35pm
    Deby Tomlin-Heilig There was hope, though when I saw Bald Eagles on Lake Verret! Beautiful sight to see!
    November 18, 2012 at 3:37pm
    Jo Celle I forgot about the frogs,and yes notice less birds too.I know winter coming on is the reason for some of this, but not all of it. We have a pair of bald eagles right behind us here. I try and try to get pics but too many trees. I watchedone scoop down and catch a fish one day.MAN how I wish I had gotten that on film. Haven’t seen them in a while. I haven’t been out to the lake in a while but am told it’s better there than here.
    November 18, 2012 at 4:05pm · 2
    Jo Celle I think you misunderstood my post. I said up until your oil/gas synopsis, I saw no reason for the test because I saw no reason for the water to be low in oxygen. the water just doesn’t get depleted of oxygen for no reason.
    November 18, 2012 at 4:30pm · 1
    Jo Celle I GET what you are saying, but I am telling you that I have been fishing these waters for 30 years and the only thing that has ever happened to deplete the 02 is hurricanes. This is constantly moving water, and the level is everchanging with the tides, the rainfall and the wind, and there are never any natural factors that depletes the 02. Any decomp of dead creatures and plant matter is factored in to that as a norm. the water has been POISONED.
    November 18, 2012 at 4:57pm · 2
    Jo Celle Comparing a sewer plant to Bayou Corne is not an appropriate comparison, IMO. Bayou Corne meets Grand Bayou, which meets Lake Verret,which connects to a couple other lakes and eventually the Gulf. Never stagnant. No reason ever for oxygen depletion, other than the bottom turning over and over abundance of dead plant matter after a hurricane.
    November 18, 2012 at 5:02pm · 2
    Jo Celle Right…..ONE thing has changed. That sinkhole AND gas and oil on the loose. So back to square one. The Bayous are being posioned. Probably the people too.
    November 18, 2012 at 5:38pm · 2
    Jo Celle Oh, and no need to shorten anything for me Craig. I’ve learned your writing style, and it is what it is. I’m a big girl and know how to skip stuff and gather what I need to know. And I like a good debate too, as you see….and you will often find that I play devils advocate to keep it stimulating…..
    November 18, 2012 at 5:41pm · 2
    Deby Tomlin-Heilig Well, whether it smells like a bed of roses now, or not,…the damage is done. But, yes the odor (smells) is not so bad, now.
    November 18, 2012 at 7:26pm
    Millie LaPrairie Geee, Craig,…nevermind!

    I have been following this since the sinkhole first appeared…it makes me angry that something this tragic is taking place in our Country and even people in your state haven’t heard about it…what is going on? Why is this not on national news? I post all I can find on my page so people will know.
    Not sure what we can do…but People should know.This is a problem that effects us all and we should all be concerned.
    I can’t imagine being told to leave my home and not knowing if I will have a home to return to.
    My heart and prayers are with you all

    Stephanie Richardson DeLee I don’t live there but know of it & follow it because of the Bouchereau’s. No one else cares b/c it is not a big storm to focus all of their attention on before an election. It has no meaning in the Benghazi sex scandal cover up. So the sinkhole is pretty much there to stay unless Obama decided to fly over, somehow ran out of gas & fell right into it. Bayou Corne may get a little attention & help for their citizens soon unless things get putting higher on the job list. Sad situation! Send some of that “special water” to the White House for Michelle to water her precious organic garden. U may get something there.

    Leslie Boudreau Winkler We were there two years ago and stayed in the Cajun Cabins, right on Bayou Corne. I saw the area on Swamp People and had to be there. I live in the Pacific Northwest and love Louisiana. Canoeing down Bayou Corne was so beautiful. I Was hoping to go back this past October. Well, now I hope to go back next October. I follow this daily on various sites…it makes me very sad. My heart goes out to you all.

    Rachel PearlBarrett we live in MD and there’s nothing on the news. i’ve been following this for months as well. but only on my news links on FB. will also say that the devastation in NY/NJ from Hurricane Sandy has completely gone quiet on the news. But what those people are living through is hell. but… not a word about it either. not subjects of interest to the media.
    November 18, 2012 at 8:53am · 3
    Cynthia Craft Montgomery it’s not on the news because it’s not affecting them and frankly that’s why they dont care. I follow it closely as i have family that live near there.

    Jo Celle As long as the rest of the US, especially up north is getting their heat, driving their vehicles, using their gas stoves, what is happening down here isn’t important. Let that flow stop, and see how fast it becomes national news. I’ve seen so many comments about how Louisiana is just a “dirty backwoods state” that I want to scream, but peoplefail to realize just how much of their every day lives depends on Louisiana.
    November 18, 2012 at 11:15am · 4
    Jo Celle I know Craig. I was amazed at how much area they supplied all over the US.
