Los Angeles Times - BAGHDAD — The price of bicycle pumps has more than quadrupled in Sadr City, for reasons that have nothing to do with cycling. Residents of Baghdad's worst slum use them to coax water from the district's battered supply lines. It's either that or use their mouths as though they're siphoning gas.http://us.rd.yahoo.com/dailynews/rss/topstories/*http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story2&u=/latimests/20040804/ts_latimes/wateroffersdeadlyreliefinablisteringiraqislum

Those poor Iraqis, it makes me feel bad that I live in a country with an ample supply of fresh water and these Iraqis are lstuck drinking tainted water.

In a sad twist of irony, as I was reading that article, I was unknowingly drinking a cold glass of water :(
