  • If it happened near San Francisco I would guess it probably meant there was an endangered fruit fly breeding downstream. Since it happened elsewhere, it's about money (which is really why it would be dammed up for endangered fruit flies in San Fran, just a different source of the money). Not making light of it - it's terrible, but honestly, that's what it comes down to.

  • I think that before anyone manufatures an item, they need to find a way to eliminate the byproducts...and if they can't, then they shouldn't make that product. Its common sense to me.
