Recovery?

R. Neal has a nice piece on Bayou la Batre over at Facing South.

It’s a little Gulfside town that made its money by shrimping and fishing. The people aren’t rich, but they felt they had a pretty good life based on what Nature offered them in the Gulf of Mexico.

This is one of the many places the Shrubbery didn’t want to go on his Katrina tour. Not much has happened since the storm, and the Federal government prevented the fishermen from digging a canal to retrieve their boats from the inland area where the storm surge carried them. A year later and almost two dozen large vessels are still in the woods inland.
