Tap Water Goodness

This NYT Op/Ed piece will only reinforce my habit of choosing to drink tap-water over bottled-water. Its not that I know one to better or worse; rather, after living in Mexico for years I have just come to appreciate and to love the luxury that is having potable water delivered out of the tap.
We are truly blessed here. I mean, there is free, potable water everywhere! In the parks! On top of mountains! In the malls! Its incredible!


  • Another good plumbing thing is reliable toilets that can accept TP. Between those two things surely you can convince Eleo to live out the rest of her days in the US!

    I was thinking the other day what it would take to become a plumber--I think there was an advertisement on the radio for plumbers to join a house-servicing company. I remembered this statement by William Burroughs that he would rather be a plumber than president in the sense that a plumber is a pretty self-sufficient economic entity. By the time a person becomes president they owe everybody this that and the other favor--your fate is largely in the hands of a million people around you.

  • Speaking of the convergencies of blog posts. Starbucks has bought a company called Ethos, which sells bottled water and used some itsy bitsy portion of it's profits for development of potable water in third world countries.

    Now if we can somehow get a picture of Roman Polanski watching Chinatown drinking a bottle of Ethos with plumbers crack I will feel complete.
