    Swimming With Cheese in Lake Michigan Sit in reverie, and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind. - Henry

      Swimming With Cheese in Lake Michigan

      "Sit in reverie, and watch the changing
      color of the waves that break upon the
      idle seashore of the mind."
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

      On their internet website, Porter Beach, Indiana, describes
      itself as "an eclectic community of 125 homes" surrounded
      by Indiana Dunes State Park. Sounds like a lovely place to
      visit, but I wouldn't want to swim there.

      This week (June 17, 2013), parents of wading and splashing
      children nearly experienced non-swimming strokes and were
      not too pleased after their wet children emerged from Lake
      Michigan coated with a silvery metallic substance which
      resulted in an immediate beach closing.

      Although a petrochemical spill was first suspected,
      Indiana State health authorities revealed on June 18th
      that the cause of the kid's lovely skin color was
      tricalcium phosphate.

      Hopefully, their new beautiful exterior flesh tone is
      only skin deep. Eclectic kids turning metallic shades of
      silver? Will a future Porter Beach child be born with
      a silver mouth on his spoon?

      Tricalcium phosphate is commonly found in cow's milk
      where it is extracted, concentrated, and then used in
      manufacturing cheese, yogurt, and fertilizer. Quick,
      call Paula Deen. She'll come up with a tasty recipe.

      Is concentrated tricalcium phosphate dangerous to
      Swim in? Beach the heck out of me!

      "A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive
      feature. It is earth's eye; looking into which the
      beholder measures the depth of his own nature."
      - Henry David Thoreau
