How many cities allow toxic waste to be burned right on their water supply? How many communities quietly ignore toxic waste contamination on top of their drinking water? How many communities have doctors (off-the-record) tell pregnant women not to drink the water but do not take action to find out why the babies have fused skulls, missing heads, missing brains, missing livers, missing pancreas, heart defects.....???
How many people, how many communities live in the FEAR that we do, to ask questions and demand truthful answers? How many are like us, and talk only to family and friends and never never ever in the open?

Toxin scare hits mozzarella sales
Sales of mozzarella cheese made from buffalo milk have been hit by a contamination scare.
Eighty [water] buffalo herds in the Naples area have been quarantined on suspicion that their milk may contain dangerous levels of dioxin.
The animals grazed on land where toxic industrial waste may have been illegally dumped by criminals.
The local Mafia - called the Camorra - have been making huge profits by dumping toxic waste in the region.
Production of buffalo mozzarella - one of Italy's most famous delicacies - has been hit by the dioxin scare.
Government laboratories are analysing milk samples taken from some 2,000 herds of buffalo which graze near Caserta, just north of Naples.
Government inspectors and scientists have cautioned that only a tiny fraction of Italy's total buffalo-milk production is affected by the quarantine orders.
They say that consumers would have to eat huge quantities of mozzarella cheese over a period of many months for the higher than normal levels of dioxin to affect their health.
But Italian consumers seem to want to take no risks, and sales of Neapolitan mozzarella cheese have declined by nearly 50% in recent weeks, according to farmers' associations."

I hope that she remembers that she is not in the military now; and, that her marching orders ultimately come from the taxpayers/community under civil law (Honest Services provision of the mail and wire fraud act).
