The Exempt Pollution Dumper

While BP backs away from putting more ammonia into Lake Michigan, the City of Chicago continues to hold its Midwest Championship Crap-Flusher record.

The Environmental Protection Agency reports that the Chicago area is permitted to discharge 243,000 pounds a day; because that city reversed the flow of its namesake river more than 100 years ago, though, the stuff typically doesn't flow into Lake Michigan. The Chicago River ultimately flows into the Mississippi River, also a drinking water source for millions of people.

Draining Lake Michigan while pushing 120 tons/day of crap over to Missouri.

The City that Works!

Count up Illinois delegates to Congress and guess whether that will ever change. You get zero credit if you use any word OTHER than "never."
