Lead paint standoff is absurd

April 06, 2011

This is truly absurd ("City won't pay lead damages" April 3.) What are the mothers and fathers of children affected with lead poisoning to do? How long will the children stricken with lead poisoning, going to survive? What about the medical costs?

This aliment came from some landlord too lazy to fix the paint problem before renting these homes to residents.

What other recourse do these people have?

Anyone who understands HUD should know that it's all about the numbers! HUD is a federal program to assist those who need housing. It's not about the lead paint and never will be!!

My heart goes out to those, who have been affected by this living condition. I do know a friend, whose son has lead poisoning, and just what she has to do every day and night.
