I know you're just joking, but lead in the drinking water is a problem that extends far beyond Flint. In fact, Flint is not even the worst.

Excuse this Brit for her ignorance! I missed Georgia and North Carolina; probably wouldn't have guessed those. I typed 'Philadelphia' instead of 'Pennsylvania' and I'm so annoyed at myself! I *know* Philly is in Pennsylvania (I've even BEEN there!) but *still* my brain mixes them up. Sorry! I bet me getting them confused sounds absurd. My excuse is that's it's currently 5:30am... hope I can be forgiven?! :D
