    I live close enough to this to be a bit concerned. I won't be swimming in the Hudson this summer!

    Don't be so worried.

    Last September I got shit-faced in Venice with two Irish friends and Marco. The morons let me walk home alone (about a ten minute walk to my palazzo). I had to literally hold onto buildings as I made my pathetic way home.

    Well, just before the last footbridge I lost my balance and ..... SPLASH... right into the canal. It was very Katharine Hepburn of me. I swallowed enough nasty Adriatic scunge water to nearly drown until two "ragazzi simpatici" yanked my Yankee arse out of that canal.

    The 'farmacista' put me on a 9 day regimen of vitman drinks to undo any possible intake of 'nasty materials' and I never felt anything more than one very bad hangover the following day. Every time I think about what's dumped into the canals in Venice I trigger my gag reflex.

    So, not to worry. We're tougher than you think. And after all something's gotta 'take ya' in the final analysis....

    Dinner will be served in 30 minutes. Tonight we're having 3-eyed fish.

    almost all of us will get cancer, and most of us will get terminal cancer sooner or later. i don't think a few drops of radioactive water is gonna affect your prognosis much :p

    would have you concerned though, TAG.

    you didn't at least suffer an eye infection
    at minimum, à la Katharine! :wink:

    Well I considered it but then thought; "hmmn so many would miss my clever wit and caustic humor" and decided against it.

    aside: Have you been? (to Venice that is?)

    Next time you go to Venice let me know. I'll veer you clear of anything remotely like Piazza San Marco or the Rialto Bridge. There's a Venice no one knows out there and it's seedy and wonderful ... :cool:
