We had a boat race party this last weekend and everybody was in the river -- well, almost everybody. Those that weren't kept saying, "I can't believe they're swimming in that river! I'd NEVER swim in that river!" What about you?

Sure, it's got goose poop and agricultural run off. Some times of year it's full of aged salmon carcass. There's always the chance of a little extra radiation. But what's the big deal?!

I've been swimming in the river since I was a toddler and I haven't seen lumps of poop floating by for years!
