  •  I wondered why there aren't Chicago fishing boats (3+ / 0-)

    There are all of these marinas full of boats up and down Chicago's lakefront, yet no fisherman.  It's a gigantic lake!  You'd think local restaurants might want to sell some local fish from Lake Michigan.  Now I understand why there aren't any fish.

    Nice job, Muskegon Critic.  

    We must use this (HIR) bill as an opening toward a renewed effort for a more comprehensive approach to health care reform. - Dennis Kucinich

      The Great Lakes are also contaminated by decades of industrial pollution, so in many places any fish you do catch (gobys, perhaps?) are full of mercury and other toxins.

      Given its industrial history, Chicago's especially bad for this.

      -5.63, -8.10. Learn about Duverger's Law.
