Lehigh Valley Sold Down The River
While Nestlé Water is finding resistance all across America, one locality sold it's residents out, and we be it. When Don Cunningham was County Executive, he welcomed this siphon of natural resources with open arms. Although Donny and his easy smile remains popular, he's the ultimate go to boy for corporate interests. He has been rewarded, being appointed executive of the regional development authority. Nestlé has been further legitimized in this locality by the Wildlands Conservancy. This bastion of hypocrisy hosts children education days, sponsored by Nestlé, where children are taught by the good environmentalists of the water corporation. Nothing says nature like water bottled in plastic.
You won't read these truths elsewhere in the local media. While you have to be both independent, and a bastard, to tell it like it really is, truth is most people don't care. Give them a free bottle of water and they're OK with it. Give them some free music, BBQ, and beer, they'll dance in the street.
