Fish kill covers beaches along the Delaware Bay Wednesday
Nice and clean.

Tens of thousands of dead fish are lining the Jersey Shore -- as far as the eye can see -- beginning at Highs Beach in Middle Township Wednesday.

...

It looked like a foam coming in and then I said, Oh, a few fish, then, No! Its all fish, Christine Cummings said about her 7 a.m. walk on the beach Wednesday.

The thousands of stinky corpses washed up over night, as there was no sign of them Tuesday.

Its scary, Cummings said. We were swimming in this since last week and it was wonderful. Nice and clean.

3. Usually what happens is a predator (bluefish or bonita)
will terrify the schooling menhaden into clustering close together and heading for a river mouth to escape in. I have seen thousands of menhaden commit suicide in Maine by flying up onto the beach to get away from the snapping jaws of a bluefish.

During these schooling clusters, especially in near shore warm waters, the dissolved oxygen will be used up and crash and the fish suffocate.

Ok bad joke :) LOL.

But a bit funny.

Ok here is the best scoop. New Jersey was getting some press, president flew up there, and Jon is from there.


Then you had a few stories the list from quit thread.

Then a bunch of fish in New Jersey.

Sounds like a narrative to me.

Although the airline story is a big fail, since he took beers.


Really sounds like someone trying to create a narrative.



So maybe the professional left comment was targeting people like Jon Stewart? I like the guy, and he makes great comments, and most of the left also likes him, but that seems to be the narrative being pushed, then again the oil narrative is being pushed also, first oil, then no oil. He does pretty good in many things, not sure why that would be the case.

Although having a Jet Blue Airline Steward, seems to add to that.

So really it is just interesting. Just thinking outloud.
