In other words, Chesapeake Bay is still little more than an open sewer and the degraded ecosystem is still falling apart despite a few hopeful signs in the past. Maybe it's time to extend the clean water act to agricultural an urban runoff?

Nah, we should just pretend it's the 50s and we don't know about or care about the environment. Maybe we can even loosen the rules and make a few bucks by actively moving backwards?

Marcintosh: Why do male dolphins die before the females?

When female dolphins become pregnant, they offload a large amount of toxins into their first fetus. This fetus / new born usually is sickly, and may die fairly early. But the second pregnancy is usually viable and sound, and is a healthy new dolphin, because the FIRST fetus absorbed most of the the toxin offload. Male dolphins have no such vector by which to offload toxins, which MAY explain what is happening. I don't honestly know.
