At Netroots Nation this past weekend, we learned about the Motor City's decision to cut off the water of 300,000 residents who could not pay their bills, and we demonstrated downtown with some of them. Two diarists today explained the history and added needed context. Please do read those.
Once you educate yourself, check out this cool way to help. There's a new website where you can pay a Detroiter's water bill. Sweet!
...and yeah, I recognize it's not a long-term fix. But it's an easy way to help right now. Love thy neighbor, and all that.
Here you go. Do your fellow Kossacks proud.
