Obama's Great Lakes Initiative

I promised news, this seems like news: Obama proposes $5-billion fund for Great Lakes

As I expect readers across the political spectrum (eventually), I will say that despite Obama's residence in Illinois, I don't think preserving and protecting the Great Lakes is a partisan or even a regional concern. It's a huge source of fresh water, which will become increasingly scare as the century rolls on.

[Also, Michelle Obama's father worked for the water filtration plant in Chicago. The family has more than a passing familiarity with Lake issues.]
