Drain it.

That comment is just silly Ernest. If the lake was drained, it would be the most expensive EPA cleanup ever. Just imagine all the batteries, beer bottles, cans, trash and years of other "schtuff" just laying there on the bottom. The people who go there a lot know what I'm talking about. It's probably best we never see the bottom of that lake.

Re: "Drain it."

Typical liberal knee-jerk reaction. No thought whatever for the the direct, let alone the second and third-order effects.

Just drain it.

Sadly, that's what passes for liberal "scholarship" these days.

Stereotype much?
(Or perhaps more accurately, "Troll much?")

What you're describing is actually a relatively small radical faction that belongs to the "cult of Edward Abbey" (to which Ernest T. Bass apparently subscribes . . . or maybe he just revels in chaos and mayhem, like his Mayberry namesake).

Most serious liberals, as well as most serious environmentalists/conservationists, understand that draining Lake Powell is not a realistic option; and in fact, don't have a real desire to do so, because of the obvious consequences. Some may wistfully wonder, "what if...?", but that is a far cry from a serious call to "drain it."

Ernest- Why? Drain it, is just a simple comment, but posting it twice says you have conviction on draining the lake. Why? You obviously like to see you name on the page, so expound on your comment. Prove why it should be drained. I'm waiting...
