Talon is small town located in Pecos County, Texas. When town officials realized that drinking-water consumption by residents was well below the national average, they decided take action and three months ago began adding sugar to their water supply to make drinking it more desirable. According to Hester Griggs, the Commissioner of Utilities for Talon, they are adding roughly "4 tablespoons of sugar for every 8 oz. cup of water." Earlier today, Pat Kelly spoke with Mr. Griggs to find out how residents are responding to this initiative.
TextHi Shelley – We commend you for actively engaging with media and your suspicions because the story about a Texas town putting sugar in the water supply is satire. This Is That is a satirical current affairs radio show from Canada, similar to your Onion newspaper. Our apologies for the confusion. Hopefully this clears things up and maybe you could pass on the word to the folks in Pecos County for us too! Thanks for getting in touch, – Chris Kelly – THIS AND THAT Producer. CBC.
