I'm so old that I remember a time when even conservative politicians had a streak of humanism in them, and the current pope was living in the Dark Ages. Welcome to a flip-flopped era.
This thing with the water in Flint--in my home state--and Governor Rick Snyder is worse than appalling. It's literally sickening.
The current Time cover story "The Poisoning of an American City" blows it wide open for mainstream America. Even if you leave emotion out of it, there are several chilling facts in the article, including this one: General Motors stopped using Flint's water supply because it was corroding their auto parts.
My all-Michigan show coming up Saturday on KAOS will contain the tag line "Bring your own water!"
Snyder needs to resign, pronto.
