Best Excuse to Revive the Environmentalist-Developer War

Globs of Algae Clogging Barton Springs

Hello? Has anyone been swimming in the springs lately? If we needed a mudpack, we'd go to the salon. That goo ain't suntan lotion either, it's detritus from real estate development in the southwest part of town. You know, the part of town that's supposed to be protected by the Save Our Springs ordinance. Where did all the chain-myself-to-a-tree environmentalists go just when we need them the most?
