Selenium, You’re Soaking in it!

Over the last two weeks, Keith Dobermann, the Tennessee Citizen Action consumer watchdog, has announced two contenders for “The Worst Legislation in Tennessee!

Week #1 brought us the “Kill Old People Cheap” Act. Week #2 was “The Beagle Madoff with all my Money and All I Got was this Lousy TShirt” bill.

It’s week #3 and this time Keith is watchdogging our precious environment. Is “Selenium, You’re Soaking in it!” the Worst Legislation in Tennessee?

Watch Keith’s Announcement, “Selenium, You’re Soaking in it!”:

“When Rep. Joe McCord of Maryville, the sponsor of a bill that would allow the release of more toxic selenium into Tennessee waterways, was asked where he got the bill, he answered without a bit of irony –  “I got this bill from people in the coal industry.”

Selenium. You know it.  It’s the naturally occurring element in coal that makes its way from the unholy valley fills created by mountaintop removal into the water supply, threatens wildlife and causes deformities in fish. Selenium.”

Don’t forget, at the end of 5 weeks, you can vote for your choice of the worst of the worst.* The winner will be announced at our “The Worst Legislation in Tennessee!” event at the LeQuire Gallery the night of October 21.

    I know thbis if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours ould cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% certain.

    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos
