Sixteen Thousand Alligators

The last 10% of this interview on NPR is mighty thought provoking. It’s an interview with the director of a key oil port in Louisiana. As the interviewer is wrapping up the interview she casually asks if he is at home right now. He says yes, but that his house isn’t behind the levee system. His farm has it’s own private levee. Which is over topping, “right now.” He and his brother have 16 thousand alligators, on their farm. Notice the nervous laugh.
