From Monsanto With Love, It’s Pesticides! – Yes, More Glyphosate for the Western Addition – DPW Sprays the Wide, Wide Webster Median

Get up to speed on our ridiculous 11-block Webster Boulevard, our own Bridge to Nowhere, right here.

And this is the latest. Now, when you have medians, you’ve got to have pesticides, right? Trees and pesticides go together like Frick and Frack.

As seen on Webster, a so-called “Great Street!,” a so-called “Better Street!,” a so-called “Livable Street!,” in the Fillmore:

(Now, you want to know what people in Japantown want to do with pointless, underused Webster Boulevard? They want to turn the northbound lanes into a parking lot leaving just one lane north and one lane south, the way most of Webster Street is already, the way all of Webster was Before Redevelopment (B.R.). Anyway, enjoy your pesticides until then.)

    I would not lose any sleep over Roundup. It has an LD-50 (standard measure of mamalian toxicity) equivalent to table salt’s. Its mode of action interferes with a life process in plants that has no equivalent in humans (unlike, say, 2,4-D, which interferes with mitosis). It is also not persistent in soils, despite the unsubstantiated rantings of one old coot who used to teach at Purdue. Can’t imagine why they got rid of him.

    Muchas. I’m not too worried about the Roundup Pro neither, but it’s something that comes along with the sainted, sacrosanct treed-up medians that all the rage these days. Roundup might not kill, but medians do, all for aesthetics and property values…

    Is roundup safe enough to drink?
