An Amazing Newspaper Web Project

Today I found this multimedia project that was put together by the Northwest Herald out in Illinois.

It's about a cancer cluster that has stricken many residents of a local village with a rare and malignant form of brain cancer. lawsuits filed on behalf of the victims claim that two chemical plants allowed volatile chemicals to seep into the groundwater.

It's long but fascinating, and will remind you of the Erin Brockovich movie.
