Pollution turns part of China's Yellow River red
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061023/ap_on_re_as/china_r...

BEIJING - A half-mile section of China's Yellow River turned "red and smelly" after an unknown discharge was poured into it from a sewage pipe, state media said Monday.

The incident in Lanzhou, a city of 2 million people in western Gansu province, follows a string of industrial accidents that have poisoned major rivers in China over the last year, forcing several cities to shut down their water systems.

1. What would Christie think?
Yellow River

- The Vietnam-era classic by the British trio

So long, boy, you can take my place
I got my papers, I got my pay
So pack my bags and I'll be on my way . . . to Yellow River

Put my gun down, the war is won
Fill my glass high, the time has come
I'm goin' back to the place that I love . . . Yellow River

Yellow River, Yellow River . . . is in my mind and in my eyes
Yellow River, Yellow River . . . is in my blood, it's the place that I love

Got no time for explanations, got no time to lose
Tomorrow night you'll find me sleepin' underneath the moon
And Yellow River

Cannon fire lingers in my mind
I'm so glad I'm still alive
And I've been gone for such a long time . . . from Yellow River

I remember the nights were cool
I can still see the water pool
And I remember the girl that I knew . . . from Yellow River
