Government Feeding Toxic Shellfish…

Our Government at Work

According to this sign our beloved fearless leaders, or is that leerless feeders, are feeding toxic shellfish to New Englanders. Either that or they’re lying. Given the liability exposure of purposefully poisoning the populous it seems like the latter although they’ve done the former before…

Personally, I think it’s all FUD.

Outdoors: 71°F/57°F 3″ Rain
Tiny Cottage: 66°F/60°F

Daily Spark: One of the questions the IRS asks is “Is you your child younger than you.” This suggests that possibly the government has developed time machines and is working to solve the Grandfather Paradox. There might be more mundane explanations but I like this one.

    I don’t think it’s a grammar faux pas.

    They have been using shellfish (oysters, usually) to perform bioremediation (cleaning) of some kinds of toxins in rivers feeding the Chesapeake Bay. They intentionally plant the oysters and then replace them every few years (when used for heavy metal filtration, otherwise they just leave them in place). A lot cheaper than dredge and dump, without all the resulting disturbance of the settled muck.

    I guess it seems to be working, so much so that they are now seeding clean waters with oyster beds, as well. They give them away to people who have waterfront docks and piers. My friend has a few.

    …which is why you can’t eat oysters dredged up from New York Harbor either.

    Bioremediation is an effective mechanism actually!
