Any dingleberry knows a waterway doesn’t have to cross state lines to be navigable.  Still, the term is perhaps slightly ambiguous.  There should be a way to phrase it to exclude the puddles that Glenn Beck and the farm bureau want to pretend lefty lunatics would try to regulate yet ensure that our water supply is not fouled by contaminants.  And I would appreciate it if SCOTUS and Congress would err on the side of people having safe drinking water moreso than the corporate bottom line.
