…you’re being had?
In all the articles I’ve read or written about over the past year or so, especially the ones concerning Ken Feinberg and the GCCF, the one thing that keeps coming up time and time again is claimants, politicians, the Justice Department and everybody else involved cites a problem with the claims process, they come up with what they think is a reasonable request for Feinberg to modify the claims process to address said problem…and Feinberg always gives the same response…
It happened with the methodology. Feinberg claimed to read every criticism before fine tuning the process but very few complaints were addressed at all.
It happened with transparency. Everybody and their mother has asked/demanded more transparency in the process and Feinberg changes little.
Now, the brown shrimp season is getting off to a horrible start and several fisherman/shrimpers are wanting to file claims, interim claims so Jefferson Parish officials request that Feinberg not close the GCCF offices he had planned to shut down, so these new claims can be filed promptly and with assistance.
And Feinberg says?

Poor shrimp season means BP oil spill claims offices should stay open, Jefferson Parish officials say
Have a nice day.

Yeah! Like when we first tried to score a Nickle bag of Weed in Jr High. We’d pull up to the projects, hand the brother our money, he’d disappear in the front door and… we’d wait… and we’d wait… and other brothers start paying attention to us, maybe starting to laugh… and we’d wait… and wait… and wait… until “that feeling” had us totally by the balls.
This feeling happened a lot, I’m told, to people dealing with post-Federal Flood rebuilding.
Feinboig has played this in spades and his name will live long in the history of this fetid business.
For us however, his name will live in infamy.
I wonder who’alls editing his Wikipedia page.
You ever think that perhaps they should have, rather than grabbing a New York attorney, grabbed someone from a Gulf Coast state who maybe had a basic understanding of the way things worked along the Gulf, rather than claim an understanding while he whitewashes away every error and scam?
An old complaint perhaps, but no less relevant.
