    LADWP is causing us to be sick. We should fight back and take what is rightfully ours. If they need water, they can buy bottled water!

    Dust has been around since the dawn of time. It contains important minerals that your body needs. To say otherwise is just plain silly.

    We are the government of one of the largest cities in the United States. We know what is best.

    The reason why you don’t have floods in your area is because we remove the water to prevent floods. You should be thankful.

    We are your friends and distant neighbors. Trust us. We know what we are doing here. We have been doing it for decades.

      Excellent satire!! Just substitute CO2 for dust; fossil fuel industry for LADWP and move a few words around and you have another one.
