No worries. Wally and the other libertarians and free marketers will soon be posting: we don't need no steeking regulation!!

The invisible hand of the free market will fix this; why, people that survive bad water will just go buy it from a "better" vendor, and reduced sales will put the poison water vendor out of business!

So what about all that hex in SJ's water? Again, no worries, those chip plants are all moving overseas eventually, and our water will be "naturally" cleaned in a century or two.

China may have to wait a tad longer.
