you stay classy, alaska

I heard a piece on NPR this morning that a mining company in Alaska is trying to get permission to dump their tailings into a nearby lake, rather than into the pond built expressly for that purpose. They're being sued by some crazy environmental groups who say it would kill the fish. Silly tree-huggers! When will they ever learn that fish like mine tailings?

I would hope there's more to this story than the mining company cackling while it twirls the ends of its waxed moustache, but . . . that's a lot to ask of me so early in the morning. I've only got so much suspension of disbelief, and there's the whole day to get through yet. Here's a link to the same story on another website, because NPR's website is impossible to find anything on.
