    They didn't "produce" the water. They put it in a bottle. Unless they've come up with a way to combine 2 hydrogens and 1 oxygen in a lab at such a price that it's profitable. ("You didn't make that" - which in this case is true)

    Regardless, getting a drink of water should be a basic human right. Not a privilege you pay for.

    Just another one of the many benefits the "free market" provides. I'm sure that private businesses will provide a solution.
    So spot on, send in the government to fix it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I didn't say it was easy, but going without water isn't easy either.

    Water may soon be the next Oil. (figuratively speaking) While I am relatively close to Lake Michigan, I get my water from an aquifer and still have it tested four times a year.

    Ask T. Boone Pickens. He was buying up all the water rights in Texas when he was peddling his plan a few years ago.
    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken

    Hahahah! You guys have yourselves so turned around. Do you honestly think that public water is free?

    It is significantly less costly than bottled water. It is supplied at no cost to people in most public buildings (ever have to pay for a water fountain?)

    Doesn't the right to live come in to play here, or do you lose that after birth? Is that really the conservative position here? No right to life after birth? No right to water? What's next, no right to breathe?
