Re: Boston's "ditch"

<< But Boston College has challenged the idea that such a tiny stream should
 be protected under the rivers act. It is not a permanent waterway, college
 officials said, because it dries up for stretches of time. >>

Well...... so what?  There are a large number of fish in the world, from
annual killifish in South America and Africa, to large fish such as the
African Lungfish, which live in water that is temporary.  Developers just want
to see to it that such waterways dry up permanently so they can cover them
with concrete.
