Most of my readers know me and therefore know that I live on the Gulf Coast; I have since I was seven years old. So when you watch this video, understand that yes, I teared up at the bit about empty trawler nets, but I lost it when I heard “The Gulf is in my body/the Gulf is in my soul.”
Where I live there is no oil. We were very, very lucky. I do not expect our luck to hold, and I fear that one day Buffett will sing this song about our little piece of paradise.
My heart is with the fishermen and boat captains on the impacted areas of the Gulf.
