SHELLEY’S NOTE: It was all over the internet – the Canadian Broadcast Corporation did an interview with a man from Talon, Texas, in Pecos County, where the man explained why the town of Talon is adding sugar to the drinking water so that more people will drink it. How much sugar? Several Tablespoons per cup. Go here for the interview, which has been picked up and reposted now on several sites that have concerns about crazy government or crazy health ideas. However, there IS no Talon, Texas, according to both the head of public health in Pecos County, the chief judge of Pecos County, and the main county newspaper, the Fort Stockton Pioneer. And they know of no town or community in their region that adds sugar to the drinking water. What’s more – the origin of the report? A satirical program on the CBC.
