Parents of the LeRoy teenagers who developed tourette-like symptoms are desperate for answers.

Many contacted famed environmental activist Erin Brockovich.

And on Saturday, members of her team made a visit to LeRoy to visit the school and the site of an old train derailment, which sits 3 miles from the school.


Quote:
"This morning, without any prior notice to the District, camera crews from a number of media sources, including both national and local outlets, entered District property for the purpose of filming an unidentified individual taking soil samples.

It is appalling that whatever group or entity employing this individual, as well as the media outlet participating in this effort, chose to conduct themselves in this way - which can only be characterized as grandstanding.


No sir, we don't want no stinkin' information about this to be found. A might shortsighted to say the least.

Heavens, no...don't want anything to expose the possibility of an environmental hazard...might cause some billionaire to have to take responsibility for his or her actions. :alien:

And the fight continues. The kids are not any better, the doctors say it is psychological and the media are responsible. The school is being guarded by police.

Big music session there, schools from all over the state came. Great thinking, eh?

Are you sure humans are the intelligent animal?

I AM SURE WE ARE NOT, DORI! And if the Repubs continue to have their way, we're going to soon be back in the DARK AGES....and the times will be even darker because there will be no enlightenment and no renaissance to come along later. They will see that it never happens again. I fear for my descendents.

I am so glad I am not any younger than I am. I fear for the coming generations--if we don't manage to snuff them out. People don't care one whit about the environment--god will take care of us all.

I hate to think of how.

How many years are we supposed to have before we have reached the tipping point and can't reverse the damage? Very few...
