"We have real rivers"

The Grand River through downtown Lansing - as in Jackson and Grand Rapids - is a mess. Floated it in 2000. But an hour or a little more downstream its beautiful .... and swimmable. No reason it can't be like that through the city. Although that's an expensive proposition. The part in this video about "I don't even know if they know they're on the water" is sad but probably true.
