A dubious character who some would like to run out off town. This is a good time to move in on him.

Best to do it now before he really hurts someone, other than himself.

Note, the water company didn't really say the water was bad. They couldn't say it was dangerous, couldn't say it was safe.

Did you know you get get Nausea and vomiting from drinking too much water? It's called water poisoning.

He seemed incredibly unprepared and rude. It was almost like he was mocking us!

I thought he seemed scared and ill-prepared - like he was only doing the press conference because his PR people or lawyers said he had to. I thought drinking the bottled water on camera was pretty stupid and insulting given the situation.

He either doesn't know "jack" about the company or he was just trying to side-step questions and trying to downplay the seriousness of the situation. His attempts to run away from the camera made him look like a rat trying to scurry back to his hole, IMO. He did a lousy job representing the face of the company.

He and his partners that just merged all those businesses December 31st are probably scared witless that their days as the rich and powerful are done. Wife in FL made have the divorce lawyer on speed dial to get as far away from this scumbag as fast as she can.

Obviously Southern is a front man. You couldn't find much shadier characters to be executives of a company. The other guy was a convicted cocaine trafficker.

Wonder what his name was before he changed it and where he is from?

There's a reason he seemed clueless about his "own company." Wonder if he was paid enough to be a fall guy for this mess. Posioning the water of 300,000 and halting the economy of a 9 county region - terrorists wish they could accomplish so much,

Is this the same Gary Southern in real estate? The photo looks the same and there's a phone number too. http://www.landsoftexas.com/member/11726
