I Love That Dirty Water

On a hot day, nothing sounds more refreshing than a dip in the Hudson, right? In fact, the State has provided a list of places that may be good swimming spots, even though some are qualified as Requiring Additional Action to Become Feasible. Maybe one of those additional actions will be replacing the brown water with clean, fresh water, but whatever.
One wag in my office suggested that this story could be improved with a little reporter involvement ---and then listed the reporters he'd like to see involved. Just so you know, I do not condone such talk in the workplace, and will not relate the list of women he'd like to see frolicking in the Hudson (Lindsay Cohen), his descriptions of their bathing suits (Ann Hughes), or the activities in which they would be engaged (Bridget Blythe).
