Flint: 4 years later by Garrett MacLean

4 years later, and the residents of Flint are still dealing with the crisis. But now, Gov Snyder has decided to stop the free water bottle program. At the same time, he is allowing Nestle to pump 500,000+ gallons of water a day out of Michigan for the fee of $200/year.

I'm glad that profits come before people. As American as apple pie.

Portrait of the Day (Guatemala City, Guatemala 2015) by Garrett MacLean

The main cemetery in Guatemala City is amazing, filled with audacious mausoleums and row stacked upon row of crypts for the lower classes, which sit at the rear of the cemetery directly above the enormous vulture-filled city dump at the bottom of the cliff. This gentleman plays songs for families visiting graves of the departed. Here he was resting in the shade of one of the normal sized mausoleums.
