You are correct, give Burris credit where credit is due. However, I cannot get out of my mind the bad column about how goddess Kaptur was going to lead us out of this mess. She had worked decades for Lake Erie. His column is a make up call for several bad columns. Maybe he has learned which I doubt but Kudos to Keith on this one.

Stay on it Tom. Keep the pedal to the metal on the Lake Erie water issue. Don't let it fade away, as it seems is already happening as time passes from the early August danger.

This nutrient pollution tragedy didn't have to happen, and it could be stopped, but only if there is a political courage that has not been shown so far. It is largely a result of political cowardice and pandering to campaign supporters, and a rigid opposition to enforceable laws (regulation) that is just pandering by another word.
