About 24,000 city water accounts have been shut off this year. A month-long moratorium halting shutoffs ended in August and crews are now back to shutting off water to up to 400 accounts a day, DWSD officials said last week. Residents, civic groups, and "The Avengers" actor Mark Ruffalo participated in mass protests in recent months fighting the city's treatment of delinquent water customers. A pocket of protesters lined West Lafayette Boulevard outside federal court Monday.Who is Mark Ruffalo? Oh he's that guy that played Hulk in the Avengers and has some other movie credits to his name. He is apparently worth $20 million. If that is the case we need to seriously ask Mark whether he has ponied up for the people who he's protesting for? After all, if it is good to have other people pay for the services used by others who cannot afford it, then Mark ought to lead by example and put his money where his mouth is and commit to at least bringing $1 million worth of customers current on their water bills. After all if you have 20 million you're not going to miss $1 million. The Ghost thinks that black folks ought to finance their development. The Ghost has put his money where his mouth is. What say ye Mark?
