Important article in the Times this morning about the ongoing effects of the industrial disaster in Bhopal, India:

Hundreds of tons of waste still languish inside a tin-roofed warehouse in a corner of the old grounds of the Union Carbide pesticide factory here, nearly a quarter-century after a poison gas leak killed thousands and turned this ancient city into a notorious symbol of industrial disaster.

Friends of Batten have visited and worked there — and, as the article points out, they still need help.  Post-Bryn Mawr relief-work stories, anyone?
