It doesn't get any better than this, does it?
I'd never thought all that much about how this water fluoridation proposal would be paid for. Now, the Times- Standard tells us that, while the Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District can fluoridate a community's water against the community's will, they can't charge unwilling customers for the fluoridation. By unwilling customers I would think they're referring to communities like Manila that recently voted against fluoridation of their water, not individual households.
So think about it: Even if you want your water fluoridated, you should vote NO, assuming you get the opportunity to vote on the issue. That way, if the NO vote wins in your community, the ratepayers in the communities that voted Yes have to pay for it, you don't.
Who says there's no such thing as a free lunch? Of course, if you're against water fluoridation, I guess you wouldn't be happy with what's being served.
