States I’ll Never Visit: Louisiana
I’ve started a list of states that I will never visit, and I’m going to share it with you guys. This list certainly isn’t exhaustive and I will most certainly have duplicates, if only because these states are increasingly ridiculous. I could have started with Arizona – they’ve certainly given us enough reasons not to go there – but I thought I’d start with Louisiana.
Louisiana has been hit pretty hard by the BP oil spill. Huge portions of their coastline have been devastated by oil, with marine life dying left and right and fishermen out of jobs because of it. Oh, and that part where the oil spill is the worst spill of all time. But despite all that, their governor Bobby Jindal, as well as some other higher-ups in the state government, want to reopen offshore drilling. Hell, Jindal even wrote a letter to the president.
Look, I understand that people are out of jobs right now because of this. But you want to continue doing that thing that caused the spill in the first place? Really? Are you really that greedy that you can’t take some time to sort out the huge mess that you’re in? Maybe you should take all those people and pay them to help you clean up the gulf.
So until Bobby Jindal and/or those other people are out of office, I’ll never go to Louisiana. I guess I’ll have to hit up some places in the city for authentic Louisiana food.
