Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"But of any application of lead in history, lead in gasoline has poisoned the entire globe, has literally dumbed the world and caused morbidity and mortality."
"Of course. This is America. This is the 21st century. This is not 19th century London with a cholera epidemic. This is Michigan. We are literally next to the largest source of freshwater in the world. But even me, who is not naive to government, there are rules, regulations, people holding test tubes in their hands making sure our water is safe. Who doesn't expect that when you turn on your tap, that your water is okay? And despite all of that, despite hearing reports of bacteria, cholera and odor - and all of these other things that came up since Flint switched its water source to the Flint River, everybody was telling us the water was okay."

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
