Dominion Dumb-Struck on “60 Minutes” Story on Coal Ash


    This segment of “60 Minutes” aired last night and features the “beneficial use” by Dominion in building the Battlefield golf course in Chesapeake. I’m sure the invitation still stands for any Dominion official to eat dinner at area residents’ homes with meals prepared using their tap water.  

    You gotta love the lobbyist at the end who tells Leslie Stahl to trust state regulations and utility management to do the right thing. “Environmental protection is expensive” he says, as if that’s an excuse not to do it.
