Its a question of basic fairness. This deal was done in the Truman administration when a Racist power hungry idiot named Perez refused to blink in dealing with Truman and we got screwed. It took an excommunication from the Catholic Church down here to get him under control. We have brought this up for decades. Again the oil revenues are a complicated issue. IF the money goes to coastal erosion it makes sense since it protects the life and property of the very people who make who work in this industry. Its a moral question at heart
Yes, it's a moral question. Can Louisiana extort the profits from someone else's land or not?
May I rob your house if I promise to use the proceeds to prevent coastal erosion?
It's only fair!

No two ways about it, Leander was a real pip!
