By all rights, Fio should be green as an emu egg. Her bath water is green, and her drinking water is probably green. It's iron, or so she's been told, which has become concentrated as the lake levels have sunk.

NOTE TO EARLY RISERS: Fio often writes the basic idea of a blog in advance, then posts it after it's polished, but occasionally she mis-schedules and one of them airs prematurely, as happened this morning. Thanks to Friend Paula for giving her the heads up. Fio has removed her diatribe on zealots, but you'll see it again once it's in better shape.
