Thanks for the book, which I could not put down. It explains a lot with respect to the endless stream of the same simple stories. Working in the field of improving rural water supplies in Africa (not the emergency stuff, but the grind), it makes me more aware of why this critical (and complex) problem gets so little air time. It is a pity that there were not some more ideas of solutions and alternatives though. The status quo is simply not acceptable. One question is with respect the other european media - particularly the German, or the Nordic countries. Is the situation any better?
