Quote of the Day - Unquestionably, there is progress. The average American now pays out twice as much in taxes as he formerly got in wages.

William Gurley tried, but it didn't work. The USEPA wanted some information from him about the Gurley Pit Superfund Site (how many of you can say that you have a Superfund site named after yourself?).
He didn't respond.
For seven years.
I don't know why he waited so long - maybe he misplaced the letter that asked for the information. My guess is that when he got served with the summons and complaint alleging he failed to respond, maybe he remembered then. But, apparently not.
I'll bet he remembers now.
That $1.9 million dollar fine levied by the USEPA and upheld by the Sixth Circuit probably made an impression.
