Water, water everywhere…

…and not a drop to drink!

The crisis in Flint, Michigan over lead contaminated water is terrible. But at the moment the apparent solution is bottled water. I read somewhere that the idea is that the Federal Government will send in some bazillion dollar bail out, but I kind of doubt it. And I know Michigan (let alone Flint) doesn’t have the money to pay for new infrastructure.

But that’s a choice we make. We could totally build new water systems for Flint, but we won’t because we’d have to pay for it with debt. The horror!
