RDRP again

Another rainy day, more runny paint for a new cause:

Rainy day, runny paint.

It was actually running down the street — I could see the paint color being carried off in the water trail that led to the storm drain and then yes, eventually the Chesapeake Bay watershed.  That’s right, Habitat for Humanity is killing sea otters (albeit unintentionally).  This reminds me of an issue I’ve never heard anyone else raise and I’ve been meaning to fire up:  the bridge gets painted so often with a bath of chemicals that are meant to last 20+ years (that is, as a nice finish on a house; it actually lasts much longer than that in the environment), yet the messages are only temporary — they will be gone within days.  (Well not really gone, still in those layers, but for the purposes of the painter, gone.)  Why not use a temporary, environmentally friendly biodegradable paint?  I’m not sure they even make such a thing, but if not, someone should.  If so, some entrepreneur should sell it on the Corner or near Beta Bridge.  Or maybe the brothers in Beta should be doing that as a fundraiser.  Beta, you’re welcome.

It looks like Brandon’s friends also had something to say about the football game over the weekend:
