To my readers,
I know I might be trying the patience of many of you by devoting so much time and space to coverage of the W.R. Grace criminal trial here in Missoula.
As some of you know, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer broke the story that Libby, Mont., had been poisoned by asbestos fibers released from a nearby vermiculite mine owned by Grace.
And as many of you have heard, the Seattle PI is about to shut down. So I’m covering the trial while I can.
I promise that soon we will be revisiting the captivating, non-stop world of nano-particles, poisoned peanuts, corporate and government hi-jinks and all the other affronts to public health that wind up in my in-basket.
Meanwhile, you can keep up with new postings on Twitter at asinvestigates
Thanks for your patience.
