I don't mean to sound mean-spirited, but somehow, a telethon to help people pay water bills seems a little over the top. What next, a telethon to help them buy gas, or pay their car insurance or car payment? It seems that the CFPUA could put some of these residents on some sort of special program for a lesser amount of money. Maybe supply water just for absolute necessity, and not for washing cars or watering grass, and washing machines. A public laundromat would serve them much better. Those of us with incomes should not be expected to support the entire world, but it seems like that is where we are headed.
