Paying the price

You probably recall the water crisis a few years ago in Flint, Mi. The city moved its water supply from Detroit to the local river. Unfortunately, they did not do much checking of the Flint River. Had they done so, they would have discovered that the water was contaminated due to lead from old plumbing. Many residents, young and old, developed Legionnaires' disease. Now, the head of the state's health department has been charged with involuntary manslaughter. He is accused of failing to alert the public about the outbreak of Legionnaires' disease.

ezs note: I have been paying attention to Flint and their water crisis. Best of luck to you.

If you have a minute, I’d really appreciate it if you took a look at Emily’s Virtual Rocket. This is a serious newsblog which has been taken from e-newspapers and e-magazines from around the world, with an emphasis on transgender issues. Also, with his election, I look for articles which critique Donald Trump.
