The [Thursday] Papers

"Chicago Public Schools has spent at least $1 million on testing for lead in the water at more than half of its schools, and on fixing some of the problems that turned up, officials said Wednesday," the Sun-Times reports.

"Remediation work continues on the 327 public elementary schools that were tested before summer break. Of the 184 fixtures and faucets that had a problematic sample, at least 120 have been fixed or replaced and put back into service, facilities chief Jason Kierna told the City Council's Education Committee."

Good job!

"But so far, the city's Department of Public Health won't say exactly how many children tested for elevated levels of lead in their blood were among those who attend any of the 113 schools that were found to have at least one problematic fixture."

Oh.

"Public health commissioner Dr. Julie Morita would say only that the number is 'very, very small.' A city spokeswoman could not immediately provide that number."

Julie Morita, you are Today's Worst Person In Chicago.

*

"I discuss all kinds of health care issues with my family," Morita said last year. "They serve as a mini-focus group for me to test new public health messages."

Okay, kids gather 'round! So, how should I best dodge the question of how many kids have tested for lead?

A) None of your business

B) Barely any!

C) A very small number

D) A very, very small number!
