Nungesser Speaks

By now, you're probably familiar with Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser - you know, the hefty, plain-speaking guy who's been working ceaselessly in the wake of the oil spill to draw national attention to the plight of the marshes of South Louisiana.

He's worth following on Facebook:

"The President comes today. He is going to Grand Isle. Even though we weren't invited, Craig Taffaro- St. Bernard Parish President & I will taking a boat ride over there today to make sure we are heard. It's only a 25 minute ride from Myrtle Grove."
