No worse than selling bottles of pills that promise weight loss or a
cure for your cold.

So, that's the point. Natural water is no better than purified tap
water, providing certain purification steps are taken on the tap
water. Of course there are no actual facts in the original article,
per normal for Baker, so we don't know what filtering goes on before
tap water becomes Aquafina. Aquafina may well be better than
natural water, at least in terms of bacteria content.

Does it SAY "spring"? I don't see anyone claiming it does. Dem's
da rules.

>That is dishonest.

No more dishonest than Baker's "...the same stuff that fills your
toilet bowl when you flush." Doesn't that strike you as extremely
hypocritical? He's using the same tactics he - and you - are
criticizing in Pepsi, just in reverse.

Nobody gets respect from waging a smear campaign.

In case you're wondering, I have no particular love for Pepsi. I
prefer Pepsi to Coke, but it wouldn't be any skin off my nose if
they went completely bankrupt. What I'm doing is showing my
disrespect for smear journalism - publicly, for those who don't know
it when they see it.

Plastic bottles are a real environmental issue. They
add a lot of chemical to the waste stream. They also
are found way out to sea. Two weeks ago I was 60 miles off the south
shore of LI and there was an area of garbage floating by...with seven or
eight bottled water bottles in the mix.
