Enjoy Bottled Water Posted by jfleck on 20 October 2008, 2:06 pm I don’t know about you, but my right to enjoy bottled water is up there with freedom from search and seizure for me!
They’ll take your bottle of Evian when they pry it from your cold, dead, but remarkably wel-hydrated fingers.
The writer of Enjoy Bottled Water.com, Angela Logomasini, is an employee of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, global warming deniers and reflexive critics of any attempt to squelch the right of businesses to make and sell any product regardless of its toxic and negative impact.

According to Sourcewatch.org, Logomansini only received $67K in 2004 for her scholarly efforts as CEI’s Director of Risk and Environment. That can’t go far in DC. So, she must really be a whack job as opposed to a clever scammer.
Thanks for the link. I did the blog post quickly, and didn’t really grasp the humor possibilities associated with their bottled water-9/11 schtick, too. Almost as funny as smoking as a civic duty.
