Saints visit Louisiana communities weary of oil
 
FORT JACKSON, La. (AP) -A Who Dat Nation weary from the worst-ever U.S. oil spill set aside its misery for a few hours to schmooze with the Super Bowl-champion Saints.

Saints owner Tom Benson, coach Sean Payton and players greeted a crowd Tuesday at Fort Jackson in Plaquemines (PLAK'-uh-minz) Parish.

The fort has been a staging area for cleaning birds rescued from the oil flowing from BP's well in the Gulf of Mexico.

In oppressive heat, a jazz band played while Payton and star quarterback Drew Brees signed autographs.

Benson and others were to have lunch with Gov. Bobby Jindal and area fishermen. A news conference was planned later.

Boycott BP until they do the right thing. This is awful.

I've volunteered to do some rescue diving and be on call if necessary. My twin brother went out and helped with a boat that had problems under the water. It makes me sick just to think about it.....and the smell just makes me sick.
