Remember this guy and his blues for the Gulf of Mexico? "Dirty Cajun" Drew Landry took his song to the Presidential Oil Spill Commission hearings this week. "I never thought I'd be the hippie that brought his guitar to the meeting," Landry said, before launching in.
Landry warned the commission about the coming hurricane season and what it means for his culture. "This could be the next expulsion of the Cajun people, the people that love this place," he said.
The commission listened, and seemed a little stunned by his message. "I think you've made your point," co-chair William Reilly told him. "Thank you for your presentation, too. Everybody's with you."
Maybe that's true in spirit, but those commissioners can't possibly be in Drew Landry's muddy shoes, not with everything he and his fellow south Louisianans have to lose.
