Holy shit they let GM use Detroit water because it was corroding machine parts and they didn't think it would be an issue to drink?????

But they weren't leaching that lead into the water supply. That happened because the governor appointed manager saw a way to save some money by using the flint river as a water supply. Instead of buying from Detroit were the water comes from Lake Huron.

TM, I believe that Mark has served, and think his point is that it is not a semantic difference. They are two very distinct orders, Sort of like saying "at ease" and "dismissed" are just semantic difference. This coming from a guy that never served, so I could be wrong.

You need to check out Carlyle Sailing Association if you haven't yet, about 2 hours east of you. Like everywhere the participation is down, even a lot of the one design dinghys  are racing handicap. There are some world class Lighnting sailors. Racing just about every weekend. Early summer/late spring we have a big charity regatta that benefits Veterans and The Whale of a Sail in October. Really nice facility,great people, and pretty good sailing. 

 

It is a great city, I'm prejudice being born and raised.
