More on the impending apocalypse...

Blood Level
Originally uploaded by hamdpenarchy.
More and more, I come across things that cause my sense of impending doom (is that a super power?) to tingle. This map, courtesey of is one of them. The map shows the distribution of children with blood lead levels higher than 10 nano micrograms per decileter, the CDC's level of concern. Luckily for us, today is the day that the new Zero Tolerance Rule takes effect here in Maryland. Only problem is that it doesn't effect owner occupied buildings (like mine). I guess its ok to give folks lead poisoning as long as you're willing to get sick along with them.
