The District has come up with a solution for the thousands of residents supplied with lead-contaminated water: Free Brita filters. Awesome. This kind of responsiveness really should get more attention -- perhaps we can work it into some civic promotion ad campaign? "The District: Where you give up your vote, but get a water filter." Or: "Washington D.C.: Now with slower poisoning." Got it: "D.C.: You can't vote, but you won't care."
