Concerned about drinking water

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDJuly 26, 2013 

Today's headline is "Beach water contaminated at two Whatcom County parks." Just below it is a second headline reading "Long-sought rules to prevent Lake Whatcom pollution face opposition."

An interesting juxtaposition. Perhaps deliberate, perhaps simply a matter of chance. I don't know or particularly care.

What I do know, and what I do care about, is the fact that the water I drink every day comes from Lake Whatcom.
