Update on the gulf

It's from an email Sojourners sent out today:

We're seeing the ripple effects of the oil spill and the cessation of fishing activities right through the economy. I think we’re still on the ascending end of this. I wish I could report things are abating. On so many levels, it’s actually more of a struggle now.

- Iray Nabatoff, director of the Community Center of St. Bernard, a Second Harvest partner, said requests for food, clothing, assistance information, and computer laboratory sessions continue to rise. (Source: RNS/The Times-Picayune)
