According to The Oracle of Starbucks....

The all-knowing Oracle of Starbucks Behold the Oracle's wisdom:

Personality type: Pseudo-intellectual

You're liberal and consider yourself to be laid back and open minded. Everyone else just thinks you're clueless. Your friends hate you because you always email them virus warnings and chain letters "just in case it's true." All people who drink <my preferred drink & size removed here lest ya'll know what I really like>* are potheads.

Also drinks: Sparkling water
Can also be found at: Designer grocery stores

"... Over the next 50 years, an additional 700 square miles of coastline are expected to be washed away, meaning a third of the Louisiana coast could be gone by 2050 unless new Mississippi River sediment is diverted to swamps and marshes, the USGS said. Louisiana represents about 90 percent of coastal wetlands loss in the lower 48 states, it said. ...

The coast's problems date back to 1928, when the Mississippi River was corralled by levees and dams, which stopped flooding but also kept sediment needed to replenish the coast from reaching the deltaic plain. Navigation canals, oil and natural gas exploration and hurricanes also have chewed up the coast.

Since 1990, about 66 percent of the state's coastal loss occurred south of New Orleans and scientists estimate the area could produce as much as 80 percent of the loss over the next 50 years unless restoration work is done." - by Cain Burdeau
