    My concern is hope that the judge and psc can turn around the Quick pay scheme.Because shrimping didn't get better like Kennenth Feinburg kept preaching at his meeting. With all the lies he speech about to us at them meeting.I still can't believe a Lawyer like him at his age could come donw south and take up for BP.Tell you the truth i never seen myself go this for in the hole.Before this big OIL SPILL my bills use to be paid and had money to fix my boat clean and painted before a season.Now that BP OIL SPILL came around three years ago i had to go see for FOOD STAMP to aleast eat. Because ecmomy still bad down south it not easy to get a job. When your a trawler and put that on and app. they just put that a side.
