We've had a big debate in these parts. BP has a major refinery nearby. They wanted to expand it to handle Canadian crude. And they wanted to put just a teeny bit more pollution into Lake Michigan. But the Chicago Tribune ran some big scary front page stories about it.
Today, BP backed down on the pollution.
Cue media trumpets.
Meanwhile, we've had a lot of rain in the past few days, so our local water authority has started dumping raw sewage into Lake Michigan.
At least it wasn't a selfish biz
The made the water smell and fizz.
