michigan and dirty water

I have a long time association with Michigan and dirty water. My first exposure, was on my father's account. He likes to share with people that he comes from the same city Madonna does and she describes it as, "smelly little town with a dirty river". (Though, to be fair, I don't think that is what she actually said.) Then, there was the small lake my Grandfather lived off of where the water smelled suspiciously like bleach and vinegar. Not to mention, that you had to run his tap forever before it stopped running orange water.

With that in mind, it came as no shock to me when the news hit of the Flint, Michigan disaster. What IS shocking is how mismanaged the whole thing has become and worse people's equally disastrous responses. You even have Michael Moore stirring the pot in that way where he almost get's it right, but fails epically.

I have a suggestion, why not do both you old ass-hat?

Obviously, the people in Flint deserve more.and the people responsible need to be taken to task. There is no question of the gross injustice. But telling people not to send clean water? Really?


Also, I find myself wanting to send every person in Flint a home distilling units or at least sending this video so they take some power back in their lives.
