Heh. I can truly appreciate that. Though the only famous canal nearby
to my present home
is admittedly less, um, 'enhanced' than the un-Lovely ditch of renown
(okay--the Gowanus)
I grew up in a charmingly medieval industrial hamlet of NJ. As
children we played on many hills,
that hindsight reveals were in fact slag heaps, and at times amused
ourselves with the brilliant blue
pebbles strewn copiously there. Chromium waste.

Apologies in advance to any of extreme ethno-sensitivity.....

As the local industrial barons would have snorted derisively at any
EPA types, were there any at the time (there certainly weren't), and
as many of my playmates were working-class kids of Italian ancestry,
we might well imagine one of the bosses saying: "Poisoning
Paisans? --Piss on those peons!"
