  1. Throw in the very lax zoning regs in Texas and the toxic mix is even a worse threat to neighborhoods. thanks for the reality check Kenne. Stay safe

    • There is much that is beginning to surface about the toxic conditions that have been known for decades, but the local and state government just looked the other way. Sadly, we are now in route back to Tucson leaving behind children, grandchildren, and friends to deal with the follow-up of Harvey.

  2. I was just telling my wife, this morning, that i hope we don’t end up eating any produce from that area anytime soon. Those poor people!
