Swimming in a River is a Bad Idea

Some locals are going to swim the Cumberland.

To prove it’s safe.

Um.  Safe as in not polluted.

Not safe as in “no unforeseen undercurrents.”

Although, as Chris Wage points out, some folks still seem to think it’s polluted.

There’s a joke here about turds in the Cumberland, but I’m too lady-like to make it.

  1. The current really is what I’d be most worried about, but if the river is low and there’s plenty of rescue staff on hand I guess it’s not that big a deal..
