Let Them Eat Fish

Public service: ur doin it rong:

Next weekend they’re going to host a walleye fishing festival in the Tittabawassee and Saginaw rivers. Because it’s walleye breeding season and the fish are running. In fact, they run right through a zone that is in the process of being listed as a Superfund site, a site where the EPA recorded the highest levels of dioxin ever measured in this country.

That’s dumb enough, right? It gets worse.

The fishing festival is sponsored by Dow Chemical, the company that put the pollution there in the first place.

Yes, that’s even more ridiculous. But it actually gets worse.

They’re donating the fish from the festival to a local food bank to give to the poor.

I know that corporations like to do charity work in order to prove what good citizens they are. Call me a cynic, but I don’t think this is quite going to accomplish that goal.

Marie Antoinette would’ve been so proud…
