Water Supply. 

We've all heard about the lead in DC's water supply. Some of us have known about it for some time ("some of us," i.e., anyone who's ever looked at blood samples from people living in versus not living in DC), some (i.e., WASA) seem surprised.

Coca-Cola is also having water troubles, and has recalled about 500,000 bottles of its Dasani water in Britain, due to excessive bromate levels. I've always refused to buy Dasani, simply on the principle that for $1.25 a bottle, I can get spring water as opposed to "filtered" water. But those marketing geniuses at Coke keep on selling it, and probably will even after this.
