    This was an eye-opening article, an account of abuse, fully sanctioned by America, and other places I’m sure. Seeing the splatters of red paint, knowing it has to be getting into these people’s lungs – is an out and out horror. Why isn’t it illegal in this country to do business this way? We don’t do it here, we just hire out for it to be done and we ALLOW it?! How sick and stupid and foolish a game this country plays. Thank you for illuminating me, Ann, once again. Bravo, and may your life be blessed by the increase of light each day! peace and love, mari
