R-I--thanks for the info on Factcheck. org. It sounds about as bad as snopes as far as absence of neutrality is concerned. There's another old saying, "The truth varies from room to room." I guess that applies to most every source of info now--whether online or the regular media. The only way we can make a difference in what is happening in our world is locally, and that was probably always true. That is difficult enough, nowadays.

I don't drink the city water. What toxins they try to remove, they replace with more toxins. It is too bad I have to bathe in those toxins (fluoride), and breathe in the toxic water vapors (If it effects the hardest substance in the body, the enamel of your teeth, what does it do to your tender, soft tissue aveoli when you breathe it in?).

Do some of you really have nothing better to do other then to dog on a Riverkeeper? Maybe you should say thank you because they make sure the water isn't so polluted that it can't be processed for your drinking pleasure. They also make sure that dams are supported and in compliance with laws so that floods are limited or prevented.

Please.

Everyone knows that factcheck.org is from the Annenberg Foundation a RINO organization with ties to Bill Ayers of the Weather Underground and Barack Obama, damn liberal commie pinko revolutionaries.

Fair and unbiased... my donkey.

OK, TOB, Irish has enlightened us. A riverkeeper....that's the PC code for "tree hugger". Boat up down the river all day, what a cool job. Really cool on a day like this.

Riverkeeper is a full-time advocate for a body of water and its surrounding community. Each Riverkeeper is an affiliate of the Waterkeeper Alliance, a grassroots advocacy organization founded by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

Although most Waterkeepers are Riverkeepers, there are also Baykeepers, Harborkeepers, Coastkeepers and Lakekeepers. Internationally, there are a total of 162 non-profit, privately-funded Waterkeeper programs. Here in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, we have 14, with 5 in Anne Arundel County alone: Baltimore Harborkeeper, and Patuxent, Severn, South and West/Rhode Riverkeepers.

These skilled environmentalists are equal parts scientist, lawyer, investigator, educator and advocate. They advocate compliance with environmental laws, respond to citizen complaints, identify problems that affect their waterbodies and devise appropriate remedies to address these problems.

Each Riverkeeper has a boat -- ranging in size from a canoe to a research vessel -- to patrol his or her waterway. In fact, Riverkeepers spend much of their time out on the water, monitoring water quality, surveying the shoreline or talking with citizens. To find out how to contact your local Riverkeeper, visit the Waterkeeper Alliance webpage, http://www.waterkeeper.org.

I finally made the Journal-World my home page, too, as it was the first newspaper I would check out, anyway. At work, my home page has beautiful photos of Kansas from a good website called Flyover People (you can find it at Kansas on the Net--KOTN.com, I guess). I pick out a photo appropriate to the season and change that from time to time.

grammaddy, I have heard that Factcheck.org is a lot more reliable and neutral than snopes. Have you found that to be true?
