Bomb Beach

Posted by Non-Hamster on August 5th, 2007

Here's an industrial strength "DUH" moment for you.  The Army corps of Engineers were involved in a "beach replenishment project" in Surf City, NJ.  This cost some 71 million dollars.  Later all sorts of World War I military hardware starts showing up in the sand that they imported to the beach.

Turns out that the place where they got the sand was where a whole bunch of old hardware was dumped years ago.  Now I am not a hamster, the sensible way to dispose of old weaponry is to destroy it... blow it up, melt it down.. SOMETHING.  What you DON'T do is just dump it someplace.

You'd think that this would be bad enoug all by itself wouldn't you?  Well, that's not the case.  You see, now the Army Corps wants the town to help pay for the removal of all that military hardware.  Now maybe a hamster would believe the town should help pay to remove all that stuff that never should have been there in the first place, but I am not a hamster and apparently niether is Mayor Leonard T. Connors
