NYT Article on Oil Spill

The only thing about this article that got me was they quoted someone talking about "crayfish" and not "crawfish".  What can you expect from them.

Here's the link:  http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/07/us/07gulf.html?th&emc=th

And here's an excerpt:

The timing is a devastating blow to the city’s psyche. Since the Saints won the Super Bowl upon the backdrop of Mardi Gras, followed by the landslide election of a popular new mayor, Mitchell J. Landrieu, New Orleans had been, by all accounts, getting its groove back. Five years removed from Hurricane Katrina, the tangible signs of a real recovery are everywhere: in rebuilt homes and refurbished parks, in old restaurants come back to life and in new businesses thriving. With hurricane season still weeks away, people were feeling optimistic for the first time in a long time.
