To make it simple! are you telling doctors not to test for lead&other toxic chemicals? The pottstown 2008 annual water quality report failed on lead and they forgot to check for arcnic&cyinied! Young and old people are not to drink the water at all! If someone is to take chemo theropy they are supposed to consult there doctor before taking any tests! your warning in the report states that anyone using pottstown water/suppling several other citities/has to run the water for five minuetes be for drinking and also even small amounts of these toxins can result of getting/diabeties,high blood pressure,cancer and Blue baby! I have all the above. also in the “PA> STATE FISH&GAME REPORT!” The tri state area is contaminated with”PCB’S&MERCURY!” A local company was sued for acid dipping metal parts and coating with lead/crome plating/ but no one was told about the water! And when a pottstown water treatetment employee blew the whistle he was fired! Then pottstown was sued by the NAACP<FEDREAL GOVERNMENT/whistle blowers act/and the local union! There has not! been a water quality report released since! and when I when to the pottstown bouro they said mabey next year! Also a Icinerator was instaled at the limerick power plant and the state "EPA!" approved the permit! "JUST ANOTHER NAIL IN MY COFFIN!" "THANKS ALOT FOR BEEING ON THE BALL!" BY the time You recieve this message I will proably be on the wrong side of the green grass! I am sixty plus years and this grey panther is a bit upset! "HAVE A NICE DAY!"

The more the better. Make things bad so they get rid of the darn things. Why take it to a recycling center when the trash can is so close?

I can’t believe humanity managed to survive until now! Thank [insert divine being that is not the Christian God and preferably some obscure reference to an earth based religious deity] that we now have such wise poeple to lead us away from our ancestor’s ways who were all retarded and autistic because of the evils of coal and other environmental nasties! Wheee!

I suspect not all know what is common to all third world countries. Hint, little or no manufacturing. Why does China now own almost all of our national debt? Another hint, they manufacture almost everything we purchase. Come to think of it mercury may not be such a big issue after all given the gain of China in world domination.

Ramakrishna Rao is saying… Mercury will thin your hair and make your children happy… Difficulty to understanding so why?

The Planet – If Mercury remains in its orbit and the earth stays in its orbit, we should be fine.

The Car – My neighbor owns Mercury and he usually keeps it in his garage. However, when my neighbor forgets to do this and leaves it in his driveway, I make the kids wear long overcoats with asbestos sewn into the lining for protection when they play outside.

The element – We lost our handles to our set of freezer-pops. I bought 6 mercury thermometers as replacement handles as I thought it would be easier for the kids to determine when the freezer pops were frozen, without bugging me about when they were ready. Anyway, this past summer Emily apparently bit down too hard on her handle and it broke. She cut her lip and smeared her face with the shiny silver stuff that was in the thermometer. The bad news is that now we only have five freezer pop handles.

But I disagree to think but strong instruction to KEEP children happy; not slow and happy story! Not?
