How are the local aquifers faring? Is there a danger of local residents running short on water?

I sense a PR effort at work here ... and the story bears looking into.

Bottled water uses a lot of petroleum, costs a lot to ship, and uses a lot more water than what leaves town on the the 18-wheelers.

What we hear about is a few jobs created.

40 jobs created and 3,999,960 to go. Has anyone noticed how when the Stimulus package was introduced Pres. Obama maintained his campaign claim to " create 4 million jobs" Now as he is about to sign the legislation, his aides on the Sunday talk shows speak about " maintaining 3.5 million jobs".

Heck of a switch.
