It was pretty early, this post telling you to put on KBOO this morning and listen to host Joe Meyer talk with little old me about last night's
full measure of election results thorough flogging of water fluoridation. So maybe you missed it. I get it. Wednesday mornings are tough.
But it's online now—and it makes for a nice, punchy back-and-forth. Just in time for your lunch hour!
Oh, and for the record, not a single fluoridation supporter called in. Like, zero. I figured maybe one of you 40 percenters might. But nope. You did not. We did hear a lot from people who think I'm corrupt/lazy/naive/stupid. And also from some people who pointed out that eating fluoridated toothpaste in great quantities is ill-advised.
(I confessed that as a kid I ate far more than a "pea-size" daub of the stuff on more than one occasion, because I liked Aqua Fresh, and never once had to call the poison hotline; maybe you'll say that's why I joined our endorsement of fluoridation.)
Anyway. Thanks! I had fun! And it wasn't nearly as awful as this commenter earlier today made it out to be.
