    In Toldeo, don't drink it, boil it, brush your teeth with it, clean yourself with it, go to a restaurant that uses it ...

    I work in a town about an hour south (where the water is fine, by the way). The run on bottled water here by those from Toledo has reached us and other cities.

    Stores in Ann Arbor are reportedly sold out of water.

    That's about an hour north of Toledo.

    Other smaller lakes in Ohio have already had these algae bloom problems, with millions of dollars in aluminum sulfate being used to help alleviate it. I cannot imagine if it's possible or if it is how expensive it would be to do treatments on Lake Erie. Billions.

    We just kept allowing agricultural runoff to drain into these lakes for hundreds of years and expected nothing bad to ever happen.

    Folk back in the original 13 colonies distrusted water (often with good reason) and drank beer throughout the day. With this, we're just getting back to the spirit of our founding fathers.

    John Kasich has got to be squirming a bit.
     
  11. To be accurate, turning Toledo water into alcohol won't make it safe to drink. When boiling water won't work, you're hosed.

    True...but I have made 25 gallons of beer over the last month and 5 more are in the fermenter. So I'm golden!
