When Romney is elected it wont be long after our rivers will burn again. Those inconvenient regulations got to go. What surprises me is the number of outdoorsmen who support deregulation by supporting republicans.

You should try drinking it and see if it turns your face pretty colors. Cheaper than driving to the river too!

Oh, no need; I've got massive amounts of synthetic nitrogens from fertilizers in my drinking water, you should see how red I get. I can't wait until a Monsanto affiliate moves in and starts dumping dioxins into the water... it'll take care of all those pesky ... everythings.

I can't eat fish from my local river, do you really think I give a crap about the bay?

Oh, I know you have plenty of "fertilizer" in you, we read it all the time from you. Seems like you have been increasing your output lately too!

Of course it is worth it. Having clean water should be everyone's concern. If some are ahead of the curve, all the better. I use the bay and have not seen the red tide of other years. Too me that shows the ends justifies the means. Hopefully as our population gets smarter we can continue to undo the damage that has been done and all can benefit.
