guess what? here in NM people don't like to be told about certain things, like seatbelts, safety seats, gun laws, and proper diapers for their kids in public pools. Many parents I've seen in public pools haven't been very supportive of lifeguards or their rules. I can imagine people's noses easily getting out of joint if lifeguards are any more hypervigilant than they are about little kids and their clothing...... much less their excrements....(a parent of a lifeguard...)

Ewwww!!!

When I was a kid, we used the city pools all of the time during the summer; nobody ever got sick from it.

WTH is going on?

Fewer restaurant inspections, parasites in our swimming pools, nitrate in our drinking water. What's next? What ever happened to good old fashioned sanitation?

I am certainly glad to have this information BEFORE I took my daughter to swim!

Looks like another summer of mini wading pool in the backyard for us.

But we are one of the best places in the country to live. At least we have clean air...for now.

We always had clean air, at least when the wind didn't blow and up came our brown cloud.

And as long as King Belly stays out of Abq.

Fewer restaurant inspections is a very STUPID idea.

What Clean Air? There is no such thing as clean air; after all these airheads pollute the environment is why the world is so dry and dead. Especially in the 4-Corners where all the Power Plants and the Oil Fields are at.

It means that all these people who swims are gross and nasty. They piss and shit and may make love in the pool. Sick! I don't really think its the children. Adults are the worse AirHeads.

I was being facetious about the clean air. I can see the haze over the city every day.

Guess what? Here in what remains of a 'free country', many of us don't like to hear about fascist abrogations of the Constitution like 'gun laws','seat belts', etc. Perhaps if parents did anything resembling their JOB, less idiots would be clamoring for the Nazi nanny state which worsens every day?:-)
