Life Imitating Art

Strange how life can imitate art sometimes. In the movie “Forrest Gump”, Forrest starts the Bubba-Gump “scrimp” company to honor his pledge to a fallen comrade (Bubba) in Vietnam. While he and Lt. Dan (his commanding officer in 'Nam) are out on the sea catching essentially nothing, a huge storm hits the gulf coast and decimates the Shrimp business.

Looks like Katrina did the same thing. Sad thing is, according the CNN story, that some may not rebuild their Shrimp processing plans but potentially sell land to Casinos. Hmm… is there another life imitating art scenario here? Nah…that movie was based in Vegas.
