    By neglect and the ever higher cost of maintenance, Argo dam will at some time become a liability to own and will be removed at a cost much higher than it’s value to us today.

    Pay once. Cry once. Remove the Argo Dam.

    This was one of your best Toons. Many layers of meaning and humor. Frame # 4 is priceless.

    Now I think I understand why everyone groans at *my* jokes :)

    Very cute.

    As a former rower and a current kayaker, I’m torn on this one, and when I think about it all I can come up with is, “Damn.”

    Anyone wondering who it was who got AA city council to delay 8 years on needed maintenance on Argo Dam – then jumped in with “the dangerous dam must go!”??? Oh, that was the Huron River Watershed Council – that “trusted” contributor the the Commonweal (so they always claim).

    Also “cute” – - The everlasting attack on the rowing teams followed by the “we need more fast water for canoeists” (like themselves) drumbeat.

    Can they spell: S-p-e-c-i-a-l I-n-t-e-r-e-s-t A-g-e-n-d-a???

    Keep Argo Dam and Argo Pond – let the HRWC and their “I want 12 more minutes on fast water” buddies wait the ten years until the dam will be legitimately removed. Patience, not pretense, will prevail, boys and girls.
