    Can we record this as a step forward or another line being drawn in the sand? I’ve been involved with this issue for 40 years and it’s always the sooth-sayers and second guessers who who increase the momentum toward the exstinction of our extinction and a lot of others. How would you like to go fly fishing and reel in your victory catch for the day and couldn’t fry it up on the barby because your catch was contaminated with polluted waters? Maybe your next catch of the day will necessarily be found in the frozen section of your local supermarket. I’m having shrimp tonight, but it comes from some northern shore that hasn’t been contaminated yet. “OLD BAY” will add to the spirit of the meal and chased by more than one discreate serving of a Zinfindel, to drown out the pain that comes with trying to find some clean water that doesn’t come in a plastic container. Let’s haul this 80% out for the evening and see what they’re having for dinner.
