The Advantages of Living Upriver

Right when wistful desires for the well-connected moving-and-shaking circles of the East Coast was setting in, I read this story:

A third of male fish in English rivers are changing sex due to 'gender-bending' pollution, alarming research shows.

Experts say female hormones from the contraceptive pill and HRT are being washed into our rivers and causing male fish to produce eggs.

The problem - which is country-wide - has raised fears that the pollutants could also be contaminating our drinking water - and even be affecting the fertility of men.

This calls for a "Why East and West Coasters are Girlie-Men" mass e-mail spam.
