We should absolve the companies that sold the poison for profit and force We the People to pay for the damages and clean up. Isn't that what makes America great?

I point has always been and continues is the endless poisoning of more innocent men, women and children who are lied to/sold that Libby is a safe place to live and raise a family....and no one gives a shit but me to warn those being lied to....as it is killing me and my family and the Town left to die from the air that kills.Nothing has changed in this death town and I wish everyone would hurry and die off and condemn this death town from ever killing anyone ever again. Libby is a asbestos town and can not ever be made a safe place for anything that breaths. Children must be a priority to protect but are of no concern...unless your hear it from me.

I join this forum late in the game although, I am not a stranger to the problems bestowed upon this sad, beautiful Rocky Mountain town...that I grew up in. First, Mike Crill you and your family are to be commended for your fight to enlighten people everywhere about the terrible things that have happened to all of the wonderful sons, daughters, Aunts, Uncles, Moms, Dads, and Grandparents alike. Those of us who 1: Grew up in Libby and have no problems as of yet or 2: Do have problems from residing there long term or short term are very aware of the fact that you seem to hate WR Grace for what they as a company has done to you and everyone else that has passed, which is without a doubt expected and understandable. Your hatred of Libby itself is misguided as WR Grace did not put the asbestos into the soil and honest, caring people are trying their best to make it safe and livable for those who still call it home. Do you still call Camp Verde home? Where else have you lived? Step outside your life and tell me Libby, MT is the devils lair. I have lived in AZ, CA, AK, ID, and WA, some major cities and some small towns but I have yet to find anywhere that I would call home like I do Libby. Stop hating and make peice with God because I feel like your hatred is mostly based on yours and your families life being taken from you before it's time. I am sorry if that is the case and make no mistake, I may some day have infected lungs from playing on the ball fields or from my Dad bringing home vermiculite to put into our garden, but I can live with my fate without letting hatred consume my life as it seems to have yours. May you and your family live a happy lifetime and may Libby once again become the great town we all remember as children.

oh boy....my peace will be when I pass and my hell is what was done to me and my family and a entire population of a town not to mention MILLIONS today sick and dying from what LIBBY AND WR Grace DID and continue to do to ALL those who continue to be lied to in the selling of Libby as safe.Of course I blame those who knew and said nothing...who else is to blame but a failed Govt to protect we the people??? from something that was/is known to kill you...as it is killing me.I shall continue to spread the truth to all who will listen that Libby Montana is not safe to anything that breaths and children must be the priority to protect. Selling Libby as safe....only kills them. what part of that do you not understand? Libby is a asbestos town and forever will be and why this mass muder is allowed to continue on new healthy generations of families is so beyond me but then again...what would one expect from a town of baby killers.Jale, are you related to Lathum by chance? lol
