VANCOUVER, Wash. - Washington state environmental regulators say they've finally found the source of pollution that has been fouling a creek near Vancouver Lake: the agency's own sewer pipes.

It would be pretty easy to laugh at this and really make them feel silly, but the truth is I just hope this serves as a wake up call to the environmentalist regulators that pre-conceived ideas of where pollution comes from can come from the most unlikely of sources.

In my 34 years of life, I have found one truth to often hold true. About the time you start pointing fingers at someone else and start laughing at them and think you are better then they are, in short order the same thing happens to you.

So does the agency have to protect the environment from itself now?

I must not have had enough coffee yesterday morning. That was a pretty good typo. I'll leave it up so others can laugh along with us. Glad it made your night.
