Small but important step - Today Flint announced that it had replaced lead tainted pipes in 192 homes.

That's cool, it's a start, anyway.

People in Flint are still suffering. I don't want others to forget about this bullshit.

That place is a mess, I do not understand why anyone lives there or drinks the water at all.
I would have built a filter Long ago if I lived within a hundred miles

Most the residents of Flint don’t have anywhere to go. Those are their homes and it’s a very economically impoverished city.

This never should have happened to them. It’s extremely negligent that officials didn’t ensure that water from the new source was treated with proper anti-corrosion agents. They knew the pipes were old and contained high levels of lead. They’d been warned early on. The massive cover up and lies after-the-fact just make it worse.

Some of those officials are being charged with neglect. I read yesterday that a medical professional among them may be charged with manslaughter. She ignored and then denied warnings of an outbreak of Legionnaires disease after the water was contaminated.
