The forgotten in Mayflower oil pipeline break

It's at the top of the page, but I want to call further attention to Sam Eifling's cover story this week on the "forgotten" of Mayflower. They are the dozens of residents who live within sight and smell of the pipeline rupture but who are getting scant attention from ExxonMobil or government officials.

Far more than the 22 homes under the mandatory evacuation order have significant concerns about their health and property values. No legislation has been introduced for them. Don't assume they're all plaintiffs in pending lawsuits, either. They aren't. Some just want answers to legitimate questions and aren't getting very far.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
