    The nerve of these folks. We need to get rid of the EPA and other Federal Agencies and then we won’t have to worry about such lawsuits. I mean isn’t that what folks want, smaller government? Whos cares about drinking water?

    Really, halvines? You really think DuPont KNOWINGLY contaminated the water supply because these people said so? Have they had the water tested? If so, did they track the alleged source to the company’s facility?

    Perhaps some other questions could be: How many of the nine smoke? How many are grossly overweight? How many don’t have health insurance so they’re going after the bucks to cover their lifestyle?

    The point is, until it is proven the water is contaminated (if it is) and that it is directly tied to DuPont’s doing, I’d holster that pistol of yours.

      You ever been to Parkersburg WV? And, “if it is”?! From – http://www.wvrivers.org/news2007/OhioRiverStandards.html

      Over 30 million pounds of toxic pollution is dumped in the Ohio River every year – more than any other river in the United States. This pollution includes over 96,000 pounds of cancer causing toxins such as arsenic and chromium, and over 67,000 pounds of developmental and reproductive toxins such as PCBs, lead, mercury, and dioxin. Tests conducted by the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO) reveal over 800 miles of the Ohio River is currently polluted for mercury, and the problem is only getting worse every year.

      And, before you criticize my source (at least I have one), please disclose your tea-party-like authority for “if it is”….

        I dont criticize your source or the fact that an outrageous amount of polution has been tolerated. I criticize the notion that bigger, more powerful bureaucracies protect anything. Considering how much polution has occurred under the watch of both Federal and State EPA agencies; we should be requiring regulatory agencies which are more efficient and responsive to their assigned purpose. If you have any sources that demonstrate how bigger, multi layered and overlapping bureaucracies produce efficiencies commensurate with their growth, the world needs to see that.
