Bend in new top 10 list

Okay, it's tenth place, but city of Bend water is known to have higher levels of a dangerous chemical, chromium-6, than what some states deem acceptable.

Check out this story to see if your city is on the list.

I'm on Avion water and we don't know its levels of chromium-6, but at least the water tastes better than the city's water.

Naturally, the federal EPA gushed about the new report on the nation's water supply, but admitted that it doesn't test, nor set levels for, chromium-6, the stuff that made Erin Brockovich a household name. Julia Roberts won an Oscar for her portrayal of Erin.

Of course, the local daily bought the EPA line, and hook and sinker too.

Also, the city's attempt to upgrade the current water supply is being met with howls of protest from the usual suspects: the daily paper and corporate interests.

Of course, what can you believe these days.

We all have to decide for ourselves if we believe the water contains unacceptable levels of chromium-6 or it doesn't. It's all about belief. As Fox News says, "you decide."

Can we trust the EPA, CNN or scientists.

I mean, who can we trust?
