Read the article. Unbelievable. Pennsylvania needs to go after the Governor and the Moran Industries for
polluting their town. Get some environmental lawyers and sue them, the governor, Moran Industries and all those that had a hand in this disaster.


Promised Land

Here is a movie just released along the same vein in safe drinking water, pollution and the film was shot in
Pennsylvania. "Promised Land".

Promised Land is the new contemporary drama directed by Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Milk). Matt Damon plays Steve Butler, an ace corporate salesman who is sent along with his partner, Sue Thomason (Frances McDormand), to close a key rural town in his company's expansion plans. With the town having been hit hard by the economic decline of recent years, the two outsiders see the local citizens as likely to accept their company's offer, for drilling rights to their properties, as much-needed relief. What seems like an easy job for the duo becomes complicated by the objection of a respected schoolteacher (Hal Holbrook) with support from a grassroots campaign led by another man (John Krasinski), as well as the interest of a local woman (Rosemarie DeWitt). Promised Land explores America at the crossroads where big business and the strength of small-town community converge.
