THE WATER DEBACLE in Flint, Michigan, grows worse by the day. Now we are getting politicians and civil rights leaders and celebrities jumping up and down. Thank God, because it really helps. Click here for more.
When I lived in Michigan, Flint was considered the armpit of the state. I would never live there. But what's happened is threatening not just a city but an entire state, and it's pathetic, and I hope some answers are found as to why the city's water was poisoned.
This is callous and inappropriate, but I can't help but think about a young media person who worked in Quincy for a short time. It was her first job in a small market. When she left, she admitted she spent a lot of her time here looking for another job in another city. I think she appreciated the opportunity and the people. But it was time for her to move on.
Guess where she landed her new job?
Yup. Poisoned Water City, Michigan - also known as Flint.
That grass ain't greener. It's just full of lead, now.
