IN THE WAKE of the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, The New York Times ran a story about a deckhand named Randy Jones living and working on Bayou Petit Caillou, Louisiana. The bulk of the news piece predictably centered on how Jones had been put out of work by the oil spill. But it also detailed how not only Jones himself but every single generation of his family had made a living fishing on Bayou Petit Caillou—since the 1700s, in fact, which is when Jones’s Cajun ancestors had first arrived in the area.
