Lead in Western State Hospital Water

It has been several months since I have made a Blog entry because I have been under direct attack by WSH Administration…  I was reassigned from my normal duties for a two month period while “under investigation” and then returned to my normal duties without ever being questioned.  I am in the process of taking civil action agains my persecutors.  I had been advised not not make blog entries while the case is pending…  But this is an important exception.
