Comments: New Tomdispatch

I am grateful that I live high up in the mountains. Wyoming is the least populated state( 450,000 in an area of roughly 160,000 sq miles). I live by a stream fed by snow melt which is crystal clear except after heavy rains and I breathe the cleanest air in this country. I count these as the greatest blessings. Clean air, clean water, its just the BEST health insurance. How many federal reserve notes would YOU be willing to give for just that?

To be fair, Jon, there's no reason the water balloons need to be filled with clean water.

I am grateful I live in a large city that had the foresight a century ago to build beautiful pipes, which still work, to bring snowmelt and fresh water from the Catskills to the eight million people of New York, whose tap water is famously healthy, tested and delicious.
