So, I assume you are aware of the incredible response this tragedy produced.

Yes, sh!t happens. Nothing is 100% safe, but how many people drink water from their taps here in Canada/US? Hundreds of millions every day. Now, how many people get sick due to contaminated water? Tens ... perhaps as high as hundreds every day (just to be very conservative). Now, do the math.

I can certainly live with odds of 1:100,000 or even 1:10,000.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.
