Wow, you could knock me over with a feather, am I ever shocked? I'd thought they'd have outsourced youthful offender convicts oiling the drought cracked inner city streets & playgrounds with it, or included in the school lunch programs? Self heating scrapple? I thought PA's old plan to have 300K residents of Allegheny CO, process 'produced water' with their intestinal flora & fauna and let Ohio worry about it thereafter was working out just fine?

Oh, I'm sorry I thought you were talking about all the salt they waste frequently leaving bucket sized piles in streets and parking lots. Or dump extra unnecessary salt because one of the residents on that street cried to their local politicians anxious to do personal favors for votes.

Unbelievable! I wouldn't be surprised if Tom Corbett is dispersing Ray Gricar's body with the "road salt" too!
