Those of you who are sports fanatics may recognize the description given to the Los Angeles Lakers of NBA fame, typically when referring to some of their many highlights and championship moments achieved over the years. Having lived my entire life in the Midwest I am no Lakers fan, but I do recognize greatness when I see it (and I think that Magic Johnson is one of the 5 greatest players that has ever played the game). Anyhow, growing up in Michigan allowed me to visit all 5 of the Great Lakes, 4 of which surround Michigan (do you know which one does not touch my home state?), and these lakes, along with the thousands of inland lakes in Michigan and the Midwest are among my favorite places on Earth. Fresh water lakes comprise the true Lake Show, and unfortunately many are under siege from Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs); a significant and growing worldwide problem.
