What's next? The air we breathe?

For some strange reason, I consider our community water as belonging to the community, and we pay our public utility to deliver it to us in a state suitable for safe use, and carry the waste away for proper treatment.

Accidents, both human and of nature happen. But deliver me from those that could happen when a profit margin is at stake.

But it has to do with CO2 emissions which humans do exhale. It's nuts but if there is a way to impose a tax they will.

for public and private electric utilities. But, as Angeline notes, food, water, and air are necessities of life.

Just where are they from the beginning? Let them start a co. and take it from there. It seems they want a going concern. In fact much is being said of privatizing toll roads, etc..

Somehow, I suspect these people want to take someone

else's water, and sell it back to them or sell it elsewhere. I understand LA did this a few decades ago to some farmers who had water that LA wanted. The farmers are long since out of business and gone.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
