Firstly the Mississippi River touches ten states, thus effecting all of those states and even others on economic, enviromental, transportational purposes. It is known as the main trafficing pipline of the midwest and essentially the all of the country. The benifits of the Mississippi River really speak for themselves and whomever cannot recognize that it is the best body of water that we have.

MAbye you don't have much experience with Misouri river, which is the best ekspecially in summer. I fished both rivers and Missouri is no contest. I pulled a 9lb trout out of the Missouri and all I've got in Missisipt is catfish which is harder to gut.

John Quincy Adams I noticed you use the EPAs measurement of the Mississipi. The US geological survey says its only 2,300 miles which makes the Mississipi 20 miles lamer than we the EPA thinks it is. Plus "compelling stuff there" is a fragment sentence.

The river itself is misnamed, the Mississippi should by rights end at St. Louis and the Missouri should flow on to the Gulf (the Missouri from its source to its confluence with the Mississippi is longer than the Mississippi's entire 2,320 miles).

http://users.stlcc.edu... is the source of that.

Thus the Mississippi only runs until St. Louis and then rightfully it is the Missouri river which jhark is arguing for. Compelling stuff there.

What about the intense amount of damage the Mississippi causes when it floods? You don't hear about the Missouri river causing natural disasters.
