Letter: Texas needs to drink its recycled toilet water


Enid News and Eagle

ENID, Okla. — Texas came up with an idea to recycle toilet water for drinking. Do they want Oklahoma to try it first?

To me personally, it’s Texas’ idea. Why don’t they drink their own idea down their throats and tell us how refreshing the water is?

Let’s go even further: Texas could take a bath or shower with recycled toilet water ... don’t forget your bar of soap.

Hearing this news this morning (Oct. 29, 2013), on the radio makes one think twice if it might dampen the lemonade stands for kids to make money.

Texas, listen up if you have a .com for your idea, get ready, you’re about to hear from the Sooner State a lot sooner than expected.

May this editorial reach Governor Mary Fallin. This may get her nose turned up, and what she says next, you may not like it.
