Bottled water evil? The author of this opinion piece claimed most people couldn't taste the difference between tap water and bottled water. Well, perhaps London, NYC, and San Francisco have tasty water supplies. And, to be honest, until moving to the San Francisco Bay area, I thought buying bottled water was silly, tap water was fine. Until I tasted the nasty stuff that comes out of the taps in some bay area water districts. The last straw was a particular cup of tea made with the tap water in Livermore. I nearly spewed, it was so bad.

I have been filtering the water at home ever since. About 8 cents a gallon for water that I can palate. I don't disagree with that writer's opinion about the wastefulness of bottled water, but perhaps he might want to go on a water tasting tour, what is true in London is not true in Livermore.
