The Big Easy…always nice to be back, I arrived this morning in New Orleans from Charleston, South Carolina, where I had been the night before at a gala event for the South Carolina Aquarium. They honored my sister Alexandra and me with the Legacy Award last year and then invited me back this year to present the award to Al Gore. It was an honor and a perfect pre-cursor to my trip to fight the oil spill in the Gulf. This is my second trip, to read about my first trip two weeks ago click here… Now I am down here again to cover the spill from a new angle…can’t talk about that…it’s top secret but stay tuned as you will learn more in the next day or so. This is the greatest environmental disaster of our lifetimes and it has only just begun.
