Return to Love Canal

It was (headline above) a Bill Murray punchline in Tootsie but now the New York Times has literally done it with a video report on what happened more than three decades ago at the most famous U.S. toxic dump disaster ever and updated to recent years.   This literally hits me close to home.  I hail from Niagara Falls, wrote one of the first major magazine pieces on the subject in early 1979, and then featured it in my 1981 book on whistleblowers, Truth and Consequences.  Lois Gibbs, featured in the video, was one of the stars of that book, along with Hugh Kaufman--who is STILL around the causing trouble at EPA.   Also see a current, somewhat similar case in...Malibu (and more here, with Hugh Kaufman).
