I'm no tree hugger and I'm even more upset at the illogical marine discharge laws (meaning the prohibition of dumping in harbors makes sense, but there is no science to the 3 mile limit for what amounts to a gallon of actual waste). However, I can't deny that human waste has both bacteria and chemicals that are a larger issue than a bear crapping berries in the woods.
it's not illegocial.. it keeps it from washing up on the beaches. Remember the Candybar incident in Caddyshack?
It also gives the idiots a target to shoot for, otherwise they -would- be dumping their tanks just off of the beaches (most likely because they would think it is funny)
In the end all that matters is how fully you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things that did not belong to you -buddha
