    OH Lana, when were you going to call me? How can you not respond to the single biggest threat to the Lower Great Lakes? Inhibited Ice Flow because of the N.Y.P.A. ice boom is killing Lake Erie and starving Lake Ontario. Please do something, you are the boss. Do what’s right. Call some hearings, look at the evidence, take some action. Don’t be bullied by the old boy network. Let’s see what you’ve got. Thx JBB of http://www.bantheboom.com
