I see from a recent Herald that you cannot buy any more fertilizer starting June 1 through September. Something about runoff into the Gulf.
Who was the fool who thought this one up? It's a big ocean and our lawns are going to pollute it? Are they going to close all the phosphate mines now?
Can't sell it here but they can sell it overseas, you say. So it's OK for them to have good crops and lawns, but not us?
Go after the fine folks who are polluting it -- like China, Japan and all the other dirt-water countries in the world; in South America they say you don't dare swim in the waters off Rio de Janeiro.
But no, all the people here want is a nice lawn and we are the real bad guys. Meanwhile, they are trying to fill up the Gulf and our oceans with crude oil. So, what are you going to do about that? Big oil is the bad guy, not homeowners here.
To the ones who passed this law: Hello? Anybody home?
