Green Gone Rampant

This is a picture of the Chicago river. Every year on St Patrick's Day they dump loads of dye in there. The council says they use environmentally friendly vegetable dye. I'm sure the marine life in the river appreciate the fact that they are dying from vegetable toxins instead of synthetic ones. Nothing says St Pat's Day like polluting the eco system.

I've always loved that they do this.

This is what the water looks like in the "canal" at the Venetian Hotel here in Las Vegas. Makes you just want to dive in, doesn't it?

It looks more moldy than Irish.

That's what I've always thought. How many dead fish do they have to pick up after this. Looks like algae. You reminded me though...in Fountain Hills near here they have the 'worlds largest fountain' which they turn green on St. Pat's day. I forgot to go over and see it yesterday. Phooey. Well... there goes a good blog post.

How awful. Of course, in Houston much of our water looks like that every day, but to do it on purpose? How long does it last?

Why? (That's really all I need to know.)
