: Pollution in the Chesapeake

There is a good, but discouraging article in the Washington Post today about the failure of the efforts to clean up the Chesapeake. Maybe the best that we can hope for from this article is that there will be renewed focus and accountability from the incoming administration. It is hard to see how our striper fishing is going to start getting better, not to say continuing to deteriorate, until this problem is solved.

Happy New Year to all.

Disappointing state of affairs, isn't it? Almost 40 years after the Clean Water Act was signed into law and the problem seems to be growing, not shrinking.
