So far I'm not feeling strongly about this one, which is very good news for my bank account.

He's got skills, but the concept is horrible. Everything is very well drawn. Too bad it just doesn't make sense or feel right. Is there a 'story' or something i'm not getting......?

the ks and mo rivers coverge about a mile away from venue, so the water theme isn't that far off.

Missouri has some of America's most polluted waterways, largely because corporate interests trump those of the environment.

Between 1983 and 1997, animal waste pollution caused 94 fish kills in 199 miles of Missouri's streams. Large-scale swine feedlots have been the biggest culprit, with 61 fish kills totaling over 534,000 fish, affecting 150 miles of Missouri streams.9 For example, in 1995, five swine waste spills in northern Missouri by PSF killed at least 180,000 fish in Blackbird, Mussel Fork and Spring Creeks.10 One spill in 1995 by Continental Grain killed over 88,000 fish.11 In 1996, animal waste killed 55,000 fish in 35 miles of streams.12 Sixty-three percent of all CAFOs handling wet manure inspected between 1990 and 1994 by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) had illegally discharged animal waste.13

Most major watersheds that southwestern Missouri's big poultry facilities drain into are classified by the state as "impaired" waters,14 meaning their pollution level now interferes with fishing and other uses identified by the state. The Elk River, which is the region's principal watershed, is so polluted that it no longer supports historic levels of fishing, swimming, and boating.15

In August 1998, environmental groups posted warning signs after measuring high levels of disease-causing pathogens, including the bacteria E. Coli and Salmonella, at Cave Springs Branch. The small stream flows into Honey Creek, a tributary to Grand Lake of the Cherokees at Grove, Oklahoma. The Missouri Department of Health also found high levels, including fecal coliform levels more than twice the safety standard. These organisms can cause vomiting, diarrhea, swimmer's ear, gastroenteritis and infection of any open skin lesions. The state health department declined to issue a health advisory.16

Sierra Club program director Ken Midkiff said state health officials' decision not to issue a health warning "has nothing to do with protecting public health and everything to do with protecting a major industry in this area."17 According to Midkiff, Simmons Industries' giant poultry processing plant on the banks of the stream releases millions of gallons of waste water into the Branch each week, accounting for 80 percent of the waters in this small stream.

In northern Missouri, Spring Creek has suffered three spills of swine waste in the last 29 months resulting in fish kills.18

Neighbors claim that PSF has been responsible for over 50 documented spills and accidents over five years, many into the same streams.19 DNR investigators have documented dead pigs, pig fetuses, veterinary waste and trash floating in PSF lagoons. PSF employees have given information to state investigators about the company's policy of cleaning up spills and then reporting the incident to state regulators. PSF had at least 20 spills in 15 months between March 1997 and July 1998. The spills totaled over a quarter million gallons of liquefied feces and urine.20

Manure spills have only been one source of pollution from animal factories. Another problem occurs when manure is sprayed onto fields in excessive amounts. In 1997, Missouri Rural Crisis Center members uncovered an industry-wide pattern of over-applying manure on fields, which resulted in degraded water quality near hog factories. The University of Missouri-College of Agriculture had supplied the DNR with faulty recommended manure application rates for permits, allowing twice as much animal waste to be spread on fields as DNR intended.21

Sounds like a poster with a message. Fits well with PJ, IMHO.
