The Sun Bleeds For New Orleans
My Mother asked me to check for a fire behind her house because of the flashes of red-orange she was seeing from her bedroom window. It was the sun setting through the haze of pollution from the fires and chemical releases in New Orleans.
The "dead zone", an area in the Gulf south of New Orleans in which nothing can live because of the absence of oxygen in the water, will no doubt expand as the toxic slug and sewage filling the depression that holds the city is pumped out.
It will be a while before I try another oyster or mudbug.
