Walton I think you said it best: "and all of us a little more on our electric bills." Everybody is going to complain about the end result, but nobody will be willing to do anything to change it. Also that's NewsJunkie5 to you!

Well, newsjunkie, the same mercury that is falling on the Muskingum is also falling on every farm in Ohio, so it's also getting into the corn, the soybeans, the alfalfa, the cows, their milk, the eggs, etc. Darn shame when a person can't go to their local river and spend an afternoon fishing and get some good protein without having to pay for it. Of course, the mercury could be removed from the smoke, but that would cost executives at AEP some bonus money, the stockholders a bit of dividend, and all of us a little more on our electric bills. Too bad profits come in the way of a grandfather taking his grandson to the river and later frying up some fish for the family. And catfish are good eating if you know how to cook them. Well, they used to be.

Regardless of the water it's in, why would any sane person want to eat a catfish? Those bottom-feeders would probably eat a boot off of the Muskingum! Also, LOL JoshBrown.Guess we better stop using coal altogether and have no electricity so we can eat a few more pieces of fish a week.

It's a sad state of affairs when a McDonalds fish sandwich is healthier for you to eat then something caught wild out of our waterways. But hey.. at least someone made a buck.
