I will be traveling next week. In my absence, Andrea Peacock, author of Libby, Montana: Asbestos and the Deadly Silence of an American Corporation, will be blogging about asbestos and W.R. Grace (and whatever else she decides to blog about). Jim Hightower called her book "a testament to the strength of ordinary citizens acting in the 'common good.'"
Andrea is a long-time investigative journalist who also spent a year at the University of Texas School of Law (where we were first-years together). She has written for various alternative weekly newspapers and has coauthored The Essential Grizzly: The Mingled Fates of Men and Bears with her husband, Doug Peacock.
It should be interesting to see another perspective while various reform proposals muddle around. I'll look forward to readers' comments.
