Save the bay even though it makes state look weird

May 27, 2011

Maryland is a funny looking state. It's a pistol-shaped land mass with a weird barrel kindly pointing at West Virginia. We are a funny looking state mostly because of the watery mass that splits us. The Chesapeake Bay is our treasure. It is Maryland. Bays are complicated thing-a-majigs. The streams and tributaries that stretch for miles around the bay are also connected to major polluters, and it is this connection that pollutes the tributaries and the bay. Maryland should be proud of its weird shape and of its bay and tributaries. It only makes sense that us Marylanders support the protection of these tributaries. Long story short, reinstate the EPA laws to protect our waterways.
