Evil Americans

Those Evil Americans are at it again, polluting the planet.<br />n<br />n<a href="http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061023/ap_on_re_as/china_river_pollution" >Chinese river mysteriously turns red</a><br />n<br />n<blockquote>A half-mile section of China's Yellow River turned "red and smelly" after an unknown discharge was poured into it from a sewage pipe, state media said Monday.<br />n<br />nThe incident in Lanzhou, a city of 2 million people in western Gansu province, follows a string of industrial accidents that have poisoned major rivers in China over the last year, forcing several cities to shut down their water systems.<br />n<br />nIt wasn't immediately clear what was tainting the section of the Yellow River. Environmental protection officials took samples and were trying to determine whether the sewage was toxic, the official Xinhua news agency said.</blockquote><br />n<br />nExcuse me, any time I hear about pollution I think it's the Evil Americans. That's what we have been taught to think isn't it?<br />n<br />nI will say that China's growing pains are getting very dangerous for all of us. Hopefully they get it under control.<br />n<br />n<strong>What makes a river so restful to people is that it doesn't have any doubt – it is sure to get where it is going, and it doesn't want to go anywhere else.
