Question of the Day: Should We Send Pollution to Polluters?

I've been thinking lead poisoning victims should send letters containing lead dust samples to the homes of people who clearly don't consider lead poisoning a serious matter. What do you think? Anything wrong with sending a perfectly legal substance that is spewed upon the public by Mittal and Cleveland Thermal to the families of the CEOs of the companies and enterprises that buy dirty power and steel from them?
How about sending lead to the politicians who vote for dirty coal burning, like the Cleveland City Council members who voted for AMP?
I mean, it's not a big deal, right.... it's mostly nice clean steam coming out of those stacks attached to coal furnaces right in downtown Cleveland... right?!?! Steam and a bunch of minerals.
Well, the public should share their mineral wealth right back.
Perhaps we should include with the lead samples some informational literature about the harm actually caused to humans by small amounts of lead.
Then, the CEOs would realize lead is more important than anthrax - and a better market opportunity - and develop a lead vaccine.
Right... we don't need a vaccine... we just need to stop polluting and get the lead out!
I know 100,000s of homes in Northeast Ohio in which to find lead, so it is free and readily available, if any CEOs want tons.
Should the people send their lead to their leaders who do not care about the environment? Good or bad idea?
