Greetings from New Orleans,
For those who don't already know, a Parish in Louisiana is equivalent to a county in (I believe all of) the other 49 states. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_parishes_of_Louisiana
Please see this: PHOTO BY TED JACKSON / THE TIMES-PICAYUNE A hand holds a bottle dipped into the oily waters of Pass a Loutre inside the roseau cane that marks the coastline of Southeast Louisiana. Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal tour Pass a Loutre where oil has washed ashore, especially on the western side of South Pass, Wednesday, May 19, 2010.
