I was shocked to learn that boat owners who have been devastated by the oil spill disaster are now being called “Spillionaires.” Well in fairness, it’s the British press – and not BP directly – that coined this phrase, saying that Bayou La Batre has become home to “a new breed of men known as the ‘Spillionaires.’” The press said the boat owners have “prospered hugely” from the “millions of pounds handed out by BP.” This is about the dumbest assessment of the effects of the oil spill disaster that I have heard so far. Everybody on the Gulf Coast, including fishermen and shrimpers, is in bad need of help. BP and its public relations blitz needs to back off and start telling the truth about what has happened on our Gulf Coast and what it really expects the future to be like.
