Haynesville Shale discovered by the NY Times in a "forgotten corner of the south"

This is how the NY Times mines the story of the Haynesville Shale in a July 29 article by Adam Nossiter entitled, "Rush for natural gas enriches corner of the south:"

A no-holds-barred, all-American gold rush for natural gas is under way in this forgotten corner of the South, and De Soto Parish, with its fat check from a large energy company this month, is only the latest and largest beneficiary. The county leaders and everyone around them, for mile after mile, over to Texas and up to Arkansas, in the down-at-the-heels city of Shreveport and in its struggling neighbors, suddenly find themselves sitting on what could prove to be the largest natural gas deposit in the continental United States.
