A couple of things to add to my last post. As a reader at Booman Tribune commented:

Not only is there the huge disconnect between half a percent and fifty percent, but there is also the inequity between what constitutes "offshore" boundaries between Florida and Texas (12 mi.) as compared to Louisiana (3 mi). Both of these issues need to be addressed

That's a major issue point for me to have omitted.

The other thing was how strange it seemed reading Lewis Lapham's essay. Apparently, he wrote it in late September or October and it was amazing to realize how much the situation had changed. Only a few weeks ago the big fear was that all of the reconstruction money would go to politically connected firms, and Louisiana would have little to show for the tens of billions that would be spent here. We were so innocent, way back when.
