Who's the Enemy?

Some of the new partnerships are going so well that, frankly, it is a little embarrassing. 3M just nominated EPA for an award, for goodness sake.

As Tommy Roland said, some people might think we're not doing our job because we're not hassling everybody anymore. Well, hassling never was our job, and corporate America never was the enemy. The enemy is pollution, contaminated food, workplace and product hazards, and the small percentage of people who smuggle drugs, cheat on taxes, and deliberately pollute our environment. Our job is to stop all of them, and we are doing it better than ever along with new partners eager to help get the job done.
