“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

    Filtered sewer water vapor. Are these people for real? There is no way everything people are put down their drains is being filtered out. Impossible!

    As monstrous as this is on a macro level, I am left feeling great sadness for Woonsocket. They are so hungry for money that they don’t care where they get it. You know what they say, money can’t buy you love.

    The city’s reputation is pretty far down the tank now, that can’t be fixed with dirty money. There is no redemption for poor Woonsocket if they sell their water to Invenergy, enabling the further erosion and destruction of our shared, fragile environment. There will only be regret. Future generations will have to pay the ultimate price, not the Mayor and not the City Council.

    Let’s hope the residents of Woonsocket will put a stop to this dangerous and depraved proposal.
