A universe of possibilities - A future full of promise
DRAINING LAKE RONKONKOMA
Since the foundation of The Committee To Drain Lake Ronkonkoma, and the subsequent Drain The Lake campaign, skeptics, defeatists and reactionaries have all come forward to do their level best to stand in the way of progress. And each time they make the same tired old excuses:
"It's always been there" and
"We don't want to do any hard work" and
"Some crazy people like swimming in it" and
"It's a convenient sewer and dump" or
"It can't be done"
All utter nonsense.
None of those reasons are valid reasons to take no action. Nothing but a bunch of rot. Compare this paltry
and ugly list to just a few of the benefits of draining the lake. If, after examining the evidence, you do not agree that
this is the wisest course, you either have an emotional attachment to the lake or you have not
understood what you have read.
