Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is good at complaining how no one is doing anything to help stop the Gulf gusher. I just got off the phone with his office. For all their crying, they don’t seem to be doing anything at all themselves. They appear to have no one working with them independently on the oil spill. No one in the Governor’s office, no one in their Emergency Preparedness office. No teams of engineers, no consultants. They just refer callers to BP, and don’t even have any contact numbers for the purpose. I asked if they at least had liaison people managing the relationship with BP. Apparently, they don’t.
I contacted the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (225-925-7500), and the Governor’s Office directly (225-342-7015).
