    We can't afford to cleanup the bay. We can't afford not to. Same problem completely across the nation.

    The corporations that pollute our waters can and should be held WAY more accountable than they are. Make THEM pay for the cleanup.

    Don't know the full situation there, but we have some superfund sites here, and the corperations that created them no longer exist. Then there is the agriculture problem with the runoff from the farms and dairy operations. And the crabbers that, if they continue as they are, will destroy the resource, but have no other employment. We need to cleanup all of our waterways, they are treasures that we should be handing our children in pristine condition, but it is not going to be easy. Many people will have to change the way they presently do things.
