This is a tragic and sad day for recreational boating on the Great Lakes.

Today, it was announced that Asian Carp (you know, the kind that jump out of the water and can knock you out or knock your teeth out) have now passed the electric barrier on the Illinois Sanitary and Ship Canal. They are now on their way to the Great Lakes.

Check out the article which mentions that, in waters infested with Asian Carp, hockey helmets are standard safety gear for boaters...

What a colossal screw up. This dreaded day has been years in the making. Everyone saw it coming and the Government did not respond adequately. How could they run the electric fence at "low power?" Inexcusable. They should look at poisoning the entire canal between the locks and the electric fence before they swim the final 8 miles to Lake Michigan.

To see why you'll need a hockey helmet, click on the link below and go to 1:50...
