Varine, always such a Debby downer. You're one of those people who wants the infrastructure to fall apart just so you can tell everyone you said it first. In many parts of the world water is a commodity that simply doesn't exist. It's not mind blowing that someone would have their water shut off if they can't pay for it in America. There are other ways to obtain water. The issue is the whole being that poor in the first place... not so much the hardships that follow, methinks. These hardships are many more than just worrying about a water bill.
