For those who missed it, there was a great Op Ed by MEC's Dave 
Dempsey in yesterday's Free Press.

LOCAL COMMENT: State botches toxic discovery
Data on dioxin contamination kept under wraps

April 1, 2002
  BY DAVE DEMPSEY
After citizens recently had to force the state to release 
information on widespread dioxin contamination near Saginaw along the 
Tittabawassee River, the public certainly has a right to ask whether 
government officials have learned anything from  Michigan's unique 
and dark history of chemical contamination.
