I agree, However, in this case: Did the big money chemical companies throw their product , excessively, even recklessly onto areas that pollute the public water? Or was it done by the people themselves? Did the universities put on classes that taught lco squirt and fert group how to use the chemicals as tools to grow a lawn to maturity in order to reducing the input for a healthier lawn? I agree that we should not need big gov't protecting us from ourselves, but the more I understand about the mindset of the typical sqirt and fert guy... perhaps we do. Who said? "Those who are not governed from within , shall be governed from without."
