Even the Dead Want the Superfund

The kitschy vintage antique store Astro-turf, on Court Street in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, hasn't been open for more than a year. But even it is in favor of the Gowanus Canal being certified for Superfund clean-up money!

The shop, which hasn't opened its door for business since well before Obama won the Democratic nomination, sudden has a "Superfund Me" poster on its door. The inside of the door. So someone went in there to tape it up.

When people who don't care enough to keep their business afloat care about the Superfund, you know it must have struck a chord in the community.
