A Prop in the Bucket

The time has come, the Walrus said, to talk of many things. Ladies and gentlemen, start your Jet Skis. The Waukegan Harbor is finally clean. The News-Sun observes that ...
U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk has been collecting mud from the Waukegan Harbor for 14 years, but he was able to stop Tuesday. Kirk, R-Ill., was joined by Gov. Pat Quinn, Waukegan Mayor Wayne Motley, U.S. Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and U.S. Rep. Brad Schneider, D-10th, along with other local leaders, when the Environmental Protection Agency officially unclassified the harbor as a Great Lakes Area of Concern during a ceremony at the harbor's Stiner Pavilion. "Get my bucket," Kirk said when it was his turn to speak.
After 30-year cleanup, Waukegan Harbor 'open for business'
The Lolrus was unavailable for comment.
