The Deepwater Horizon Disaster Day 38- Louisiana Congressman Charlie Melancon

Charlie Melancon represents Louisiana's 3rd District in the United States House of Representatives. As shown by the map, the Louisiana 3rd encompasses the areas being directly affected by the oil spewing forth from the Deepwater Horizon disaster; the fishing and shrimping has been destroyed, the wetlands have been fouled by the toxic goop, wildlife has been killed, and a legacy of life in the Delta might be at an end.

This morning Congressman Melancon spoke before a  House Energy Subcommittee  regarding the disaster that has struck his home and is destroying the lives of  the people of his district.. He became emotional...and let his heartbreak show.
