Quote of the Day: Drinking from the Willamette

From Jack Bogdanski, on the dust-up between the city of Portland and the Tualatin Valley Water District, the latter of which claims it will skip out on buying Portland water in favor of the Willamette River:
Anyone who would drink the Willamette (except maybe upriver from Eugene) is nuts. Everything from human waste to radioactive sludge is in there. I'm sure the engineering geniuses will tell you that they can filter out enough of the bad stuff to make it safe, but "safe" is just an opinion, and you are the experiment.
Gee, I always wanted to be a guinea pig...
