DC males turning female

Pollution may appear on the national agenda, now that the "intersex" phenomenon is showing up in DC.

Intersex is the problem of males developing female sexual characteristics. Now that it's happening to record levels of Potomac residents, the problem may get attention.

...except that it's still just showing up in Potomac FISH...

Maybe Congress will get worried since some members of Congress must drink the water and eat fish, and they might get a dose of whatever did this to local fish.

So far, action has not exactly been swift. Dale Kemery, media contact for the EPA’s Office of Water, said that the Agency is waiting for more scientific investigations before declaring a position.

And since it only affects SMALLMOUTH bass, I suppose members of Congress need not worry.
