    Great tasting water is one of the few things Louisiana does well. (no pun intended)

    The Japanese are buying a lot of our wells. They know what's coming.

    All I know is a massive river runs by three blocks away.

    Without clean drinking water, a person will die in 7 days.

    Are you okay with for profit corporations having that type of control???

    You can substitute a lot of things for water and say someone will die and it be true.

    Is food a right? Is air a right? Is soap a right?

    I find it mind boggling how many people feel like they are entitled to everything on this big blue planet of ours. I suggest if California is going to be continue to grow in large size, instead of feel entitled to the water of the great lakes, find a more cost effective way to change sea water to fresh water.

    No one has the right to water, or entitlement to water, it is a good like anything else.

    I mean seriously, the emotional, hysterical arguments people make for everything.

    A car is a right, sex is a right, the right to have a working boner.

    What about the CHILDREN!!one11!

    Without food, a person will die in 3 weeks. Are you okay with for-profit corporations having that type of control?

    Re: Water not recognized as a human right

    It seems that the concern of some is that 'corporate' control of water is dangerous.

    Here's an interesting web site that discusses the pros and cons of public vs. private water providers, complete with a 200+ page report.
