I got an email from FT Worth Can DO Organization about this very same thing. Was this there story or yours?
Actually, Tracy, if you click on the link you will see my source.
Early last week, I was bcc’d on an email from Don Young asking the Star-Telegram to report on the flaring. I replied to Don’s email and cc’d Steve with information I had on flaring and the toxins released and with the link to Peggy’s DRC article. The Star-Telegram didn’t report it so Don sent out his email and posted it on his blog, Steve reported it on Pegasus News and I posted it here.
It’s called sharing information and spreading the word.
Honestly, Tracy, you’re obsessed.
