The GOP/NRA/Michigan Teabillies want you to know lead poisoning is no big deal.

Gun nuts want you to know there are liberal "myths" about lead poisoning 

Perhaps this sort of bought-and-paid-for willful ignorance is why Michigan Governor Rick Snyder and his Teabilly legislature were totally blindsided by the water crisis in Flint.
Apparently in the mind of the conservative, lead poisoning is no big deal but even if it is real we can blame it all on leaded paint and gasoline that were banned decades ago by the pesky EPA that they want to eliminate ASAP for making all those unnecessary regulations.

Listen to your voice mails people..

My last voice mail from Tina..

She killed herself later that night. I didn't know about this message until I checked my voice mails after I got the news.  She was going through a really tough time in her life.  We spent a lot of time on the phone very occasionally with me listening to her vent about how horrible she had been treated by her ex-husband a local doctor of questionable character who somehow managed to use his money and influence to make it a crime for her to even visit with her three young children in the days leading up to her committing suicide. I had known Tina since 1st grade at Christ the Good Shepherd in Lincoln Park, Michigan .   RIP for you Tina, but not yet for those of us who could have done more to help you.
