Thanks for keeping us up-to-date on the Indiana fish kill. This story is
unfolding like a soap opera, and a very grim one at that. Your question about
E/T species was excellent.

The image of all those dead fish is haunting me. >>

The questions was prompted by comments of people on this list. Thank you for
the prompt.

Not a pretty sight at all. I see pictures every night on the news. So far I
have not gone down to see it first hand: too d_______ depressing. And of
course, you aren't supposed to come in contact with the water.

What are we doing to ourselves? I know things are better than they were 25
years ago, but still. Almost all of the waters in Indiana have some sort of
restriction on eating fish and some have 100% restrictions. Now we can't
even touch it, including some small streams.
