Did you hear the one about the subdivision in Henderson County, supplied by a for-profit water company, who've now been without water for days because the owner of the water company didn't keep his system maintained and simply abandoned it?

It's going to take the city of Hendersonville to rescue these folks.

This piece of free-market chicanery might come as a blow to John Hood of the John Locke Foundation, who urges us all to see the beauty of water-privatization. If this bunch could only figger out how to make money off of breathable air!

Water is essential to life, and putting its supply into the hands of profiteers is a bargain with the devil.
