The Detroit News is in the second day of a major series by
David Mastio on EPA's performance in the last 30 years.

This features lots of bashing of the agency over failure to
quantify public health benefits of environmental cleanup and
a particularly disappointing quote by Rep. Vern Ehlers saying
that EPA should not tighten standards for ozone and particulate
matter and should instead spend money on nicotine patches so
people could stop smoking.    ....Sounds like Ehlers is
discounting the evidence that ozone and PM cause increased
rates of hospitalization for asthmatic attacks.

The series can be found at:
