GOP Puts Kids Ahead of Profits (Not!) 

According to the LA Times, researchers in Texas have found a possible link between autism and mercury in the air and water.

Study finds possible mercury-autism link

The number of children diagnosed with autism in America is continuing to increase at a rate of more than 20% a year, according to the latest figures published by the US Department of Health.

The link between mercury and autism as well as other health issues, especially in children, is well known, of course:

Autistic Society >> Mercury >> Mercury risk rising

But it’s okay. I will sleep much better tonight knowing that Bushco (a wholly owned subsidiary of Rove-Goebbels, Inc.) is putting mercury emissions controls in the gentle, caring and compassionate hands of capitalist industry. These kind and concerned folks will no doubt put kids ahead of profit. No need for cumbersome air pollution laws and regulations.

Today might be a good day to join the Sierra Club. Membership in any number of environmental organizations helps them fund lawsuits and lobbyists. A nice birthday, anniversary, bar/bat mitzvah or St. Patrick’s Day gift, too.
