Description

The Riverfront Times reports, "In its lawsuit, St. Louis is eager to blame the lead industry for making the area one of the most contaminated in the nation. But the city itself is guilty of doing little to prevent the poisoning of thousands of children like 'Little Al' Evans." This article chronicles the life of a little boy in the aftermath of lead poisoning and what the city of St. Louis is doing and not doing to prevent future cases of poisoning.
