More Smiley Faces in Libby

On Aug. 6, the EPA administrator and Max Baucus (must be an election year) visited Libby and attended the latest in a seemingly endless string of asbestos hearings. In the early fifties the owners of the Zonolite mine did tests showing that their miners had cancers and asbestosis caused by the toxic materials they were mining. EPA has spent the last seven years cleaning up Libby. Nobody can say whether the cleanup has done any good and that same nobody claims no knowledge about the asbestos spread around the entire country by W.R. Grace from the Libby mine including the World Trade Center. In the meantime, the number of little white crosses continues to grow and the victims continue to be ignored. Max continues to demand answers just like every other politician who has visited Libby in the last twenty years and yet nothing ever gets done but we can count on a lot of smiling faces waving to the crowds in Libby every time there is another election.
