Round Two of the total coliform bacteria in the Brainerd city water system - when is it going to end? It's nothing to worry about? Guess again. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm aggravated it took almost a month to deal with the contamination the first time. It's going on month No. 2 and I still can't drink the water I pay to have running from my tap and I have skin irritation from showering in that same water that has been deemed nothing to worry about. If this was Minneapolis, the problem would have been eradicated within 48 hours.
(Editor's note: Round Two is over. Everything should be back to normal now.)
Clearing up the misunderstanding
A Vox Pop writer stated, "The recent Vox Pop True Colors writer complained about name calling from the left, but ignored the sludge that comes from the right." The True Colors writer did not "complain" about the name calling from the left, (the person) simply pointed out the absurd irony of a writer who shrills about the Tea Party protesters' language/behavior in one sentence, only to engage in the very same behavior in the next. I hope that clears up the misunderstanding.
(Editor's note: The Vox Pop Department of Civility thinks everybody needs to take a drink of our "new" Brainerd water and relax.
