(NEWSER) – Those who thought Erin Brockovich was just a decent movie might want to check their drinking water: An environmental group has found the probable carcinogen featured in the film in the tap water of 31 of 35 US cities it analyzed—the first such study of hexavalent chromium to be made public. Topping the list of offenders were Norman, Okla., Honolulu, Riverside, Calif., and Madison, Wis.
 First, a bit concerned; second, "just a decent movie."  Regardless of what you may think of Ms. Roberts, Erin Brokovich is not "just a decent movie." [#35 on my Flickchart]
