John Stossel hasn’t seemed to mellow much over the years. He’s just as cranky now as he was when I watched him on 20/20 in the 80’s. In his latest column he takes on the bottled water industry. My favorite part is where he quotes the expert suggested by the bottled water association. When asked if bottled water is healthier than tap water, Dr. Stephen Edberg, of Yale University’s School of Medicine replies thusly:

“I wouldn’t say, uh, it’s healthier than tap water. I mean, uh, it’s both, they both provide, uh, water.”

You certainly can’t argue with that.
