The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency won't oppose the U.S. Department of Defense and DuPont Co.'s plan to dump a wastewater byproduct of a deadly nerve agent into the Delaware River.
The agency said it's assured of a safe treatment for up to 4 million gallons of caustic wastewater created in the treatment for VX, a chemical weapon with a pinhead-size potency to kill a human. DuPont is treating VX for disposal at its Newport Chemical Depot in Indiana.
"EPA believes that all of our previously identified ecological concerns have been resolved," said Walter Mugdan, director of the agency's Environmental Planning and Protection division in New York, in a letter released Friday to CNN and obtained by The News Journal in Wilmington, Del.

So, I gather you think that democracy is a failure in this regard, at least American democracy. Why do you think American democracy puts in people who are neither honorable or ethical? Do you favor election reform? Do you disagree with the conservative courts that have largely blocked it?
My view is that our reps are pretty much a reflection of our nation. Some are honest, some are not. Some are smart, some are not. Certainly many of them have given up more lucrative opportunities to serve, and for that they deserve some credit. I'm not trying to single out one party or another here, because I think each party is fairly equal in terms of the ratio of good, honest reps to bad ones.
