62. Water privatization
is my biggest fear. I don't post much about it because it puts my stomach in knots. I read posts about it, so don't think your posts have been ignored.

I received a brochure from Suez Environment in Paris about water privatization. They thanked me for my "inquiry" which must have been: What the hell do you think you are doing?

As bad as everything else is, water privatization is likely to be the death of many people.

Keep posting.
