Dallas Morning News


Vintage tub, 205,000 ppm lead. Charleston, S.C.



The “best” (funniest) quote ever in an article about me was from this Dallas Morning News piece!


“Rubin said she got rid of the tub in her Portland home because it had lead in it. Her kids haven’t had a bath in seven years.”

I was cracking up for days about that one! . [They takes showers!  … and the littlest one, Charlie, does still take baths – in our large, lead-free kitchen sink! :-)]

    Nothing like a little grammatical error to bring humor to a very serious issue. The images conjured up from the quote should stay in folks’ minds quite a while.
