Dow fined $202,325 but it coulda been a whole lots worse cause of its crummy pollution history

In the criminal justice system, if you get busted and you have a whole lot of prior offenses like the one for which you are currently in handcuffs, well, you're up shit creek.

It's not like that in the pollution game in Texas.

In Texas, you can have all sorts of prior offenses for polluting the air and the authorities don't care.

The latest example is Dow Chemical, which we explained in Hairballs, the official blog of the Houston Press.
