Green Army's First March

Lt. Gen. Russell Honoré Leads Enivro Group Aiming to Influence Legislature



Retired Lieutenant General Russell Honoré got famous after Katrina for restoring a semblance of order to the streets of New Orleans.  Mayor C. Ray Nagin called him “one John Wayne dude,” and he was branded “the Ragin’ Cajun” for his bravado.


A Rigged Equation


NOLA notables from Mayor Mitch to Tab Benoit have been spinning out about the "real story" behind the Big Oozy, then promptly saying they don't have time to get into it. Well, we at the NoDef nerd den endeavored to find a little morsel that actually laid down some details. Open wide, children: Oliver Houck's recently-published snapshot of the oil industry's evisceration of the Louisiana coast is required reading. And if that doesn't get you throwing enough crap across the room, Houck has a book on the subject, too!
