Sea Scum

The video above depicts the so-called "sea foam", which is actually just sea scum. This is how it gets when the wind kicks up only a little, and the wind was not very bad on this occasion, with the point being that the foamy scum does get even more voluminous than depicted in the above video when it gets windier, and it also tends to be more discolored in yellow, brown, and green shades (all three colors at the same time -- page down to the video which has a purple "man o war" jellyfish for a thumbnail for an example of discoloration). Consider just how much toxic chemical crud there must be in the sea water such that the ocean looks like the inside of a washing machine churning full of discolored detergent-laden "foam". Point: altho the tourism and chamber of commerce charlatans try to imply that some "sea foam" can be expected "naturally" in high winds, we totally disagree with that unconscionable deception because as recently as the early eighties we never observed this foaming of ocean waters here, and feel strongly that this only started in the last decade and has become increasingly worse as each year goes by, simply because the level of chemicals and pollution is continuously avalanching -- realize that they test the ocean water for bacteria (but not for chemical contaminants, that they dare report anyway) and quietly warn swimmers to get out of the water if there is any chance of an outbreak of sickness that might make the news as bad publicity... Note that nowadays any contact with the ocean water immediately leaves an unpleasantly slick, slimy feel on the skin, and after it dries it feels un-natural sticky and tacky on the skin, which also is not how it used to be. Just wait until the half million gallons of toxic chemical "dispersants" from the gulf oil "spill" comes churning onshore out of the gulf stream current. Realize that according to German researchers and the Los Alamos Laboratories (who have modeled the transport of dye from the Deepwater Horizon spill site) “Oil released by the Deepwater Horizon spill could reach the western North Atlantic Ocean by November”; given that, the toxic oil/dispersant sludge must at least be floating around on the eastern Florida coastline as of this point in time (September 2010). So, along with a sunburn you can now also get fried from a "waterburn"... Note that it is not just eastern Florida, nor is it just the ocean -- check out the article at this link regarding the horrendous water quality on Florida's west coast...

Filthy Putrid Ocean Water

The above video is an example of how dirty the seawater can get. Just what is all that black stuff in the water, we can only wonder, but appears to contain sewage-soaked overripe rotting sea vegetation among other vile trash. This is not at all a rare occurrence, quite common these days. Gives the aforementioned beach roaches something to eat, and of course their excrement is mixed in with this disgusting detritus...

.
>

This is what happens after they "plow under" the beach detritus with a grader rather than picking it up with a "raking" type device (which they have but rarely use) -- then after soaking in salt water and the burning sun, then covered with flies and roaches for the evening and overnight, they plow it under again the next morning, to begin the next days cycle of rotting vegetation, by then filled with squished eggs from the filth bearing critters...

. .

After viewing the above videos, we interject for your consideration, that what you see in the glitzy smokescreen delusional mirage of ads and commericials regarding Florida beaches is nothing like the reality of the preceding or following videos (the subsequent videos tend to be worse than the preceding, so watch for "warnings" about viewing videos of unpleasant and disgusting sights). We don't know where the unconscionable tourist industry captures their pictures and videos, but it doesn't look anything like that here in the real south Florida (some ads with beach views DO look like the Cayman islands, to us...). The point is, keep in mind that the ads are misleading and do not depict what you will actually encounter if you travel to SoFla......

.

Warning: if you are the least bit squeamish, you might choose to skip the next video below (as the movements of these disgusting beach roaches resembles that of cockroaches which most people find revolting) and avoid south Florida beaches because these disgusting bugs infest the shorelines of the beaches in dense numbers eating ocean filth and are almost impossible to spot...

Beach Roaches

The above video shows a bucket full of the catch of filthy "beach roaches" by a person collecting them as fish bait. The fishermen use a long-handled bucket-shaped screen to drag along the waterline at the ocean shore and haul bunches of these vile little filth-eating vermin out of the ocean water with each drag of the device. Realize that you will not catch sight of these "sea bugs" but they are there in the water with you and no doubt as you walk in and out of the water you are stepping on them thinking they are sea shells.

. .

Warning: if you are the least bit squeamish, you might choose to skip the next video below (as it is much worse than it appears from the thumbnail pic) and avoid south Florida beaches because this is a much too common sight, or worse for swimmers is that this type of decaying, rotting carcass can cause unpleasant encounters...


"What IS that FISHY smell"?

When the winds are blowing inland from the ocean, you can detect a combination of malodorous smells, some of it emanating from the filth and rotting garbage from the stinking beach, but there is also always a repugnant fishy smell. The above video gives you an idea of where that disgusting fishy smell comes from. Over the decades and more recently over the years, we have observed increasing numbers of dead fish on the beaches. On some beach walks these days we see up to a dozen dead fish, in various states of rot and decay. Some appear very fresh as though they had beached themselves, as whales and dolphins have begun to do here, said to be due to the volatile chemicals in the ocean water... Note that the ocean water was fairly clear when the above video was captured, and of course the dead fish was washing in to the beach, but on days when the water is not clear, swimmers can bump into or step on this kind of detritus.

.

Warning: if the thought of be-headed animals bothers you, skip the next video below, and do not visit south Florida beaches because decapitated/be-headed, dismembered, and mutilated animals -- usually fowl such as chicken or ducks but also including snakes, lizards, and supposedly even monkeys -- are often found on the beach, left behind by a growing "third world" element that still practices sacrificial "voodoo". We should add that it is not advisable to go out on the beach at night as these voodoo practices are said to take place under cover of darkness, and you just never know when they might decide to plop off the head of a human, feeding the remnants to the sharks of course to avoid obvious incrimination. "Wonder whatever happened to Jack and Jill that night; they just disappeared on that walk along Hollywood beach, never to be seen again"...

Chickens are the usual victims of be-headings on the beach; it is said the voodoo-ers drink the warm blood of sacrificial animals as it spews out of the newly headless victims. Many other occult, satanic, paganistic religions are practiced here. To name just a few: "El Africano", "Oloye Ifatoku", "Ifa Orisha", "Santería", "Yoruba", "Kabbalah". The practices of these religions range from drinking the mucus of giant African snails to the above-noted public mutilation of animals. There is said to be more to the mutilations than just decapitations, but we avoid going into details which would delve into unpleasant perversions which we are as yet unable to confirm...and hope we never are in a position to confirm...



.

In just the one video directly below, note the lemons, limes, bananas, melons, and more, the excess garbage dumped overboard by the hundreds of cruise ships coming back into the nearby shipping hub of Port Everglades.

The above video depicts the typical garbage and trash found on the beach every morning from what cruise ships dump overboard at night after their excessive food indulgences are not consumed -- they just throw it overboard and the rotting garbage washes up on the beach. They also of course dump their sewage bilges directly into the ocean. Check the next video below for the uncaring one-person "cleanup crew"...



.

The above video is of the one-person cleanup "crew" for the miles and miles of beach in Hollywood, the point of which is not only does the cleanup crew drive up and down the beach ignoring most of the trash that they drive over, but we had just informed the person of the decapitated chicken and they just drove on (we surmise that he did not understand English, but was also uncaring), leaving it to turn off beach-goers that might decide not to return to Hollywood in the future because of such ghastly sights. Our bottom line on this for now is that the beach cleanup crew is woefully understaffed with incompetent ignoramasses. But, leaving the trash and garbage and dead animals on the beach is compensated for by tractor-towed leveling devices ("graders") that simply "plow under" the smelly refuse into the sand, so watch where you sit and especially where you step because in addition to human fecal matter that washes up on the beach (there are stretches of miles at a time where there are NO "rest room" facilities so people just go into the ocean to relieve themselves), Hollywood actually has a "dog beach" whereupon dog poop is deposited -- more on that later including important warnings not to swim anywhere near the dog beach area along with the bacteria contamination in the ocean water from sewage that is pumped just offshore (link to article about the Miami sewage problem, which is pushed up to Hollywood by the gulf stream and washed onshore by winds and currents)...

.

Also, be very aware that sewage doesn't always make it "offshore", as they often have "sewage spills" directly on the shoreline, witness the article at the link below. Note that this article also supports our contention that factual information about the contamination of the ocean water is intentionally with-held from the public, and warnings -- such as they are -- are only issued in situations that might result in massive illnesses that might draw national publicity... Here is a link to an article regarding how local "health officials" are intentionally lax in warning the public of contamination. .

We also have a blurb about the sewage and bacteria problem over on the Hollyweird page, as well as even more information piled up (pun intended) in the que to be added, all of which we hope to soon attempt to merge into one consolidated point for the information. In the interim, if you would care to view the info on the tri-county sewage and bacteria problem, click on this link to the Hollyweird page video on "beach sewage factories".



.

Not only will you find various types of excrement (aka, poop) washed up on the beach, along with the aforementioned dumped waste from cruise ships and freighters, but there will also be poisonous jellyfish, sharp little pointed (living) barnacle shells, dead fish, hooks from broken fishing lines, rusty nails in pieces of wood, and glass from broken bottles. Walking barefoot on Hollywood beach can be treacherous if not impossible. A precaution to bring "beach shoes" and check out the sand before you park your body on a beach towel...

An additional point regarding the above three videos on the trashy Hollywood beach is that they were recorded on mid-morning of the Saturday on Easter weekend -- so this was the "best" that they cared to do on a busy holiday weekend still during tourist season, so imagine how much worse it gets on weekdays after tourist season. Some visitors walk by the beach and think that the dead-animal/fish, rotted-vegetation, sewage-like odor is coming from the ocean, when it is mostly coming from the beach itself. Further, the management of beach "cleanup" [sic] seems to be unaware of the horrible conditions, or they are just ignoring the detestable situation -- we speculate the latter of the two aforementioned contentions is unfortunately the reality of the situation. In the latter case, lack of funds does not appear to be an issue as we see obvious signs of frivolous monetary waste -- more on that later...



.

The above video is further illustration of why you should watch your step and stay out of the water.

First, note that the purple blob in the video is a Portuguese Man o' War "jellyfish", but more importantly observe the long string-like stinging tentacles that stretch out for up to twenty feet along the beach (and are difficult to detect). These long tentacles are filled with venom which is powerful enough to kill fish and of course will inflict "stings" upon contact to humans. Further note that detached tentacles and dead specimens such as the one above can sting just as painfully as the live creature in the open water, and may remain potent for hours or even days after the death of the creature or the detachment of the tentacle. Stings cause severe pain leaving red welts on the skin which last for several days. The serious complication can be that the venom can travel to the lymph nodes and can cause a much more intense pain, leading to serious side effects that include fever, shock, interference with heart and lung function, and even death. Consider that when swimming in the ocean that these deadly jellyfish can be impossible to detect due to wave actions hiding them, particularly with such long tentacles... Later we will address shark attacks and lightning deaths, both of which the state of Florida is the said "capitol" of, eventually getting around to scorpions, killer bees, and baby-eating alligators and pythons, so be sure to check back...

WARNING: if you are not feeling well or it is around meal time, we suggest that you defer reading this next piece of seriously necessary information until you can "stomach" it, but do remember to peruse it later for the well-being and safety of you and yours.

Secondly regarding the above video, notice the discolored yellowish, greenish, and brownish "foam" that accumulates on the beach (usually much worse than it appears in the above video). This dirty foam of course is simply detergent-like bubbling of contaminants from the ocean water and serves as an example of the fact that it is indeed "dirty water" which can have it's own delayed effects on skin and all orifices of the body (skin feels sticky, tacky, even gummy after even the slightest exposure to ocean water). Lastly for now, consider all of those reports of the norovirus cruise ship sicknesses and picture the hundreds of victims projectile-vomiting, even over the railings of the ships, into the ocean water as they pass by just a mile up the beach into the mammoth Port Everglades shipping channel (that likely accounts for the greenish foam, with the brown foam from sewage, and the yellow foam from urine and toxic chemicals), and of course they all projectile-something-else out the other end also (the cruise ships and freighters dump their sewage bilges into the ocean, supposedly way out there somewhere, hopefully)...


.

The above video of Hollywood beach shows the profuse amount of trash left behind by beach goers, noting at the end of the video on the left side is a large trash receptacle only a short walk away from the low-life sleazy creeps were that simply left it behind -- realize that this trash was "left behind", but also that it was right there next to them when these filthy people were still there, lounging in their own squalor. This is one example indicating the type of incredibly disgusting vermin that is taking over this region. Time to move elsewhere... Below is a second video for more of a closeup. Realize that these videos were captured at two p.m. in the afternoon, and apparently the one-person cleanup crew was AWOL this day, not that he does much good when he is not AWOL...

And, while on the subject, check out the video below of Miami's South Beach for an even trashier beach, about a hundred times worse than the videos of Hollywood beach trash. The point? Hollywood beach decades ago was not trashy (nor was South Beach), people did not litter and picked up after themselves. We have made references on this website to the emerging tsunami of disgustingly trashy people in Miami and Dade county, and the video below proves our point. But as this disgustingly trashy element continues to invade northward, as it has been doing for decades displacing the decent people that flee further north to escape this rude, obnoxious, lowly, sleazy, crime-oriented element, they bring with them their obvious disregard for lounging in filthy squalor. Note that the video below is not our video, and the people in it are unknown to us; point being that others share our opinion...

In the above video you may observe not only the seagulls scavenging the beach garbage, but also that there were flocks of PIGeons. Pigeons are not natural inhabitants of the beach, but consider that their name starts off with p-i-g, and anywhere there is "food" they eventually learn to go to plunder the bounty of rotting trash left behind by the human trash. The result is an increasing population of pigeons, and consequently an increasing amount of pigeon poop. These birds have become a pest in local neighborhoods, to the point of cleaning out birdfeeders meant for the native denizens of Florida...

.

Hollywood's solution to the trash, just plow it under and let it rot away. See next video below for what happens next...

. .
>

This is what happens after they "plow it under", then after soaking in salt water and the burning sun, then covered with flies and roaches for the evening and overnight, they plow it under again the next morning, to begin the next days cycle of rotting vegetation by then filled with eggs from filth bearing critters...

A true beach roach -- they die from overeating the toxic trash...

Hollywood Beach has "gone to the dogs", literally, figuratively, and poopily...

The above video was captured on Easter Sunday, so the crowd was light; the typical crowds usually yields between fifty to one hundred dogs. Watch where you walk and best to stay out of the water anywhere near this area. The upside for the city of Hollywood doing this is that they charge admission, hopefully paying for the overtime of the park rangers that oversee the operation.

Nothing against dogs, but you never see any canines on the beach in real life, naturally, and we feel that they would be best left to their inland habitats, and "dog parks" if owners want to doggedly socialize, which is all this is, a nice place for dog owners to interact at the expense of the naturalness of the beach...

Note that there is an ordinance that prohibits dogs on the beach (outside of the "dog beach" zone) with signs everywhere indicating that, yet people openly violate this law and are never ticketed by local law enforcement for the infraction. Contrast that with the same law enforcement officers that manage to "look the other way" for dog walkers that will ticket anyone that violates the "open container" law outside of the main broadwalk business area (where the same ordinance is still in effect but mostly ignored); they of course enforce this law selectively, in a "discriminatory" manner which is typical of the openly blatant corruption that seems inherent in the entire region...

.

Beach Sand Soaked in Sewage Bacteria

Another factor to be considered when pondering swimming in the ocean waters, is that so-called "treated" sewage from the mainland (think of all those thousands of wall-to-wall mile-high condos filled with old, sick, fat people and hotels filled with fat tourists that over-eat and over-drink...) is pumped out into the ocean just two miles offshore through old rusted leaky pipes with holes in them. This ocean dumping up until just over a year ago was untreated raw sewage. Realize that not only does this sewage, whatever form it is actually in (you trust municipal governments don't you?), can either go out to sea, or nowhere, or obviously can make it's way back to shore diluted somewhat by the ocean waters. This and other factors result in residues of chemicals used to "treat" the sewage and high levels of bacteria, which is tested for once per week (supposedly...), and if it tests at dangerous levels, people are quietly told to get out of the ocean to avoid an epidemic of infections which might become newsworthy creating bad publicity. However rare, such bad publicity is actually sometimes reported, here is a link to a local article regarding one Hollywood beach being closed to swimmers due to unsafe levels of "bacteria" related to sewage which presents some interesting insights. We recall recent reports that the sewage pipes are badly rusted and have holes in them near the shore, from which the sewage leaks out before it gets very far. Lastly on this, consider that the local City of Hollywood "FAQ" on sewage is worded as follows: "The 'effluent' is then either discharged to the ocean, or further treated for use as reclaimed water". Wonder what they do with the so-called "reclaimed water", considering that all of south Florida constantly suffers from water shortage problems and has restrictions on water usage. You do trust municipal governments don't you? Maybe that is what is in the water pipes that they send down into the Florida Keys, just let those Keys conchs drink our "reclaimed water"...

Here is a link to bonus article which very explicitly details the monumental enormity of just the Miami Dade county sewage ocean-dumping just offshore, stating "Every day these six [just City of Miami] pipes [eight feet in diameter] send close to 400 million gallons of partially treated wastewater into the sea." But, also consider their statement that "...[two of] the pipes’ endpoints are located [only] two miles offshore in [only] 100-foot-deep water. But the [ouflow of] other four pipes are [dump sewage even] closer to shore." and just how this ocean dumped effluent is pushed up to Hollywood and Broward county beaches by the gulf stream and then washed onshore by winds and currents, along with all the rest of Broward counties sewage.

Footnote on the sewage and bacteria. As contaminated as the ocean water can be with toxic carcinogenic chemicals and sewage bacteria, it is admitted that the sand on the beach is even more contaminated with bacteria than the water. Realize that all of the sand on the local beaches has been pumped onto the beaches from two to three miles offshore (for "beach renourishment" [sic]), from exactly where all of the sewage (raw, untreated until recently) is "discharged". This is done in frequent major beach restoration projects (after the beaches erode away every few years) conducted by the U.S. Corps of Army Engineers. Realize and remember and tell friends and family that the sewage is pumped out into the ocean sand, where it settles into the sand as a residue, soaks into the sand for a few years, then they pump the same sewage-soaked sand back onto the cruddy beach. Each time they do this, the "new" restored sand is noticeably darker than whatever sand was left on the eroded beaches. This results in visitors being amazed when they discover that most local residents (that are aware of the filthy beach sand and ocean water contamination) do not go to the beach nor swim in the ocean, because most local residents simply prefer to avoid filth... Bonus points: they test the ocean waters and when it tests too high for bacteria they make people stay out of the water, onto the beach, where the sand is more contaminated with bacteria than the water; but they never tell anyone about the contaminated beach sand. Beachgoers would be safer in the dirty water than on the filthy beach. The unconscionable hypocrisy of it all... Here is a link to one of thousands of reports that confirm this tip.



.

The above video shows a beach full of beach-goers being kept out of the ocean waters due to supposed "red flag" conditions and the potential for "rip currents". As you can see from the pan out over the ocean waves, the waves are not all that big of a deal, with the point being that (even with the lifeguards now having the big jet ski's for "rescue" of swimmers) they keep people out of the water just so they do not have to bother with even the remotest possibility of rescuing anyone -- altho, on this day we were highly skeptical that anyone would be in danger and that the lifeguards were just cranky (aka, hungover) and even enjoyed keeping people out of the water and frustrated (anyone that got more than a few feet into the water was relentlessly "whistled" to come back to shore and sit on the beach). Clarification: altho the beaches are often closed (but, not nearly as often as they should be closed) due to unsafe contamination of high levels of what the local unconscionable tourism-industry-controlled health agencies call "bacteria" (which is just a nice way of saying raw sewage), we are certain that on the day the video was captured that the beach was not closed due to sewage contamination and that the actual reason was (supposedly) a danger from rip tides...

. .

State Park Beach View

This is not a "joke". The above video shows the western view from the beach of one passenger jet airplane taking off from the much too nearby FLL/Hollywood International airport, along with the ugly view of a huge ocean-going container ship unloading at the ugly scaffolds in the port, and of course finishing up with the extremely trashy beach, still during tourist season. Note that the constant succession of noisy jet airplanes taking off is from the north runway of the airport, and a needless expansion of the airport is intended to add a second south runway so that they can constantly have two jet airplanes taking off at the same time, spewing their toxic trails of invisible jet engine burnt fuel vapor trails to rain down upon those below on the beach. All this combined with the numerous other air and water pollutants make this area a very unhealthy environment.

I must mention that the above video was captured within the boundaries of what is officially a Florida state park on the north edge of Hollywood, or what is left of it (Lloyd State Park). Decades ago, this park was pristine, unspoiled, clean, and a much desired beach destination with beautiful shady pine trees and the port was still small and had not expanded south to clutter up the view. The port is still encroaching southward and plans are in the works to destroy even more of the natural environment by dredging away (aka more accurately as "clear cutting") hundreds of acres of natural habitat to create a "turning basin" for the increasingly larger container/transport/cruise ships that overrun the busy, noisy, ugly, smelly, polluting port. "Anything for a kickback dollar" is the mantra here -- when the adjacent everglades environment has been wiped out they can rename it from Port Everglades to something like Port Evergloom, Port Everpolluted, or Port ForEverStoopid.

The Gulf Stream Loop Current

Experts indicate that the gulf stream "loop current" in the Gulf of Mexico is simply a conveyor belt "transport mechanism'' for "spilled" crude oil, fertilizer runoff, bacteria, toxic materials, dumped chemicals, garbage, trash, and raw sewage.

This loop current pushes into the southern gulf in a clockwise swirl, carries the outflow from the Mississippi River (therefore, all water-borne pollution from the industrial midwest...) and from the other estuaries all around the gulf, including the refuse of the megalopolis of coastal cities and tourist resorts, funneling it all back out of the gulf through the Straits of Florida, inundating the islands of the Florida Keys, then making an abrupt left turn northerly at the southern tip of the Florida peninsula, brushing Miami, then hugging the entire eastern Florida coast only two miles offshore, where the prevailing southeastern winds blow everything up onto the east coast beaches.

So, realize that what doesn't wash up on the shores of the gulf coast will eventually wash up in the Florida keys and all along the east coast of Florida. Everything dumped into the Gulf of Mexico eventually finds its way to both the Gulf and Atlantic coasts, and the entire southern Florida peninsula is ringed with pollution, toxins, trash, garbage, and soon to include "chemically dispersed" and burned crude oil, of course along with the charred remnants of all of the burnt, oil-soaked sea life and coastal birds and animals that will be consumed by the gulf oil spill and the ludicrously obtuse smokescreen mirage tactics to "clean up" the crude oil crud with fire and toxic chemicals. Click on this link to view a graphic of the gulf loop current, but realize that this particular graphic shows a smaller loop current than is actual, and that the size of the loop current changes daily, on occasion hugging the entire gulf coast.

The Florida beaches and ocean waters are already despoiled with trash, rotting garbage, raw sewage, and toxic pollutants, but will now become sincerely and monumentally putridized with even more poisonous filth. Now, in addition to the occasional voodoo-beheaded animals on the beach, there will be a continuous wave of all types of oil-soaked and burnt dead critters washing up on Florida beaches. Just think of the smell...

More on this later, we are just getting started (in the interim, check the topics regarding the beach on the "Oncoming Trainwrecks" page). We will provide videos as soon as the oily crispy critters start washing up on our local beach, but for now we provide the following clip from an article about the hundreds of thousands of gallons of "chemical dispersants" that are being dumped into oil spill that will eventually be picked up by the loop current and "dispersed" all around the South Florida shores. "The dispersants contain harmful toxins of their own and can concentrate leftover oil toxins in the water, where they can kill fish and migrate great distances. The exact makeup of the dispersants is kept secret under competitive trade laws, but a worker safety sheet for one product, called Corexit, says it includes 2-butoxyethanol, a compound associated with headaches, vomiting and reproductive problems... There is a chemical toxicity to the dispersant compound that in many ways is worse than oil”. An expert on oil spills that was involved in the Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska has stated that the dispersent is only for "looks" to ease concerns and does nothing to solve the problem, only adding to the overall problem by infusing chemicals into the crude oil crud. Note that initially half a million gallons of the chemical dispersants are being dumped into the oil spill... Here is a link to the article.

“Hey Honey, load up the cooler with beer, we’re eatin crispy critters off of duh beach again tonight”.

Crabs are moving from the swamp to the beach parking lots because of the garbage left behind by beachgoers...

New Shark Warning

The mega-millions of gallons of toxic crud that spewed from the Deepwater Whoreizon gulf oil volcano has resulted in "strange behavior" of sea life, forcing them out of the normal territory closer to the shorelines and beaches, even migrating to other regions of the gulf and ocean waters. This of course includes sharks, so be wary and also warn anyone you know that might venture into the waters of Florida because this "news" will likely be suppressed as much as possible by the unconscionable tourism industry. Here is a link to an article that we managed to find, hidden in the local section of the Miami Herald --> UPDATE: as is all too typical, the article at the preceding link has disappeared, as the local chamber of commerce business desperadoes force the local newspapers to eliminate anything that is counterproductive to the business and tourism industries raking in money, even if it means exposing uninformed residents and witless tourists to dangers that they really should be made aware of...
