Dispatches from the Gulf

Pete Wilson, a New Orleans resident and 2009 graduate of the University of Iowa masters journalism program, recently visited Grand Isle, La., to take stock of the BP oil spill. “I kept hearing … the situation was worse than what was being reported, so I went down to Grand Isle to see for myself,” Wilson explained to IowaWatch.
