In the usual spirit of free and open discussion of the issue the Council will hear the pros and cons of Fluoride at the END of tonight’s meeting.
Get ready for poison in your drinking water folks and thank [Admins Note: content cut- articles must address the topic and not who may or may not agree with the author] for all these “benefits” by rail roading this through with the absolute minimum of public comment.

God help us.
In today’s Huffington post:
When American scholar Warren Bennis said, “Bureaucracies are beautiful mechanisms for the evasion of responsibilities and guilt,” he might well have been speaking of the current state of affairs inside the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

And with a full five day’s notice I’m sure everyone is updating their calendars: 1) Mow lawn 2) figure out what to do with kids now school is out 3) Investigate, study and reflect on complicated bio-science of contentious public health issue and give testimony at council meeting.
The cynicism and arrogance of this paternalistic administration knows no bounds. What’s worse? They’re likely going to get away with it.
