Illinois legislators have an opportunity this fall to do something important and help to regain some of the public's trust in government. They can pass a bill to test for lead in the drinking water at Illinois' schools. (Yes, believe it or not, no such testing is currently required....as if we needed a reason to think even less of the state's leadership.)
This is about how to send the right message to a company that is alleged to have willfully endangered the health of workers.
Day after day these days, we see expressions of clueless bewilderment from government officials: "Why are the people so mad at us?" "Why do they hate us?" "Why are they so anxious to throw us out of office?"
PORTLAND PARKS DIRECTOR NEEDS TO 'GET' THAT LEAD-CONTAMINATED DRINKING WATER IS DANGEROUS.....OR QUIT HIS JOB
