On Pointe a la Hache, about 45 minutes south of New Orleans and mostly accessible by car ferry, oystermen say their catches plummeted after the spill, and have only been getting worse.
“We don’t have anything left on the East Bank,” said Roy Harvey, a 57-year-old lifelong oysterman, who now travels away from Pointe a la Hache’s federal waters to the West Bank of the Mississippi. He now has to pay private landowners 50% of his catch to fish in their more fruitful areas.

The worst part about BP’s oil-spill cover-up: It worked 22 Apr 2013 | Cross-posted from Newsweek
Within days, the 32-year-old single mother was coughing up blood and suffering constant headaches. She lost her voice. “My throat felt like I’d swallowed razor blades,” she says.
Then things got much worse.
Like hundreds, possibly thousands, of workers on the cleanup, Griffin soon fell ill with a cluster of excruciating, bizarre, grotesque ailments. By July, unstoppable muscle spasms were twisting her hands into immovable claws. In August, she began losing her short-term memory. After cooking professionally for 10 years, she couldn’t remember the recipe for vegetable soup; one morning, she got in the car to go to work, only to discover she hadn’t put on pants. The right side, but only the right side, of her body “started acting crazy. It felt like the nerves were coming out of my skin. It was so painful. My right leg swelled — my ankle would get as wide as my calf — and my skin got incredibly itchy.”
“These are the same symptoms experienced by soldiers who returned from the Persian Gulf War with Gulf War syndrome,” says Michael Robichaux, a Louisiana physician and former state senator, who treated Griffin and 113 other patients with similar complaints. As a general practitioner, Robichaux says he had “never seen this grouping of symptoms together: skin problems, neurological impairments, plus pulmonary problems.”
