Mercury Rising!!




Recently on the evening news, there was a scene of breaking news. They were reporting on a mercury spill, and the aerial view from the news helicopter showed hazmat vehicles, men in white body suits, and an evacuation was underway. I was looking for the trainload of mercury that was spilled, but then they broke the devastating news. A standard mercury-filled thermometer had broken and created a world of hooplah!

gr8 blog man... News today is more about hype and it doesn't happen... it's made to happen. Unlike in print, where you get a day to get ur product out, in broadcast, news changes in minutes. Hence, moronic newsmen who've been drinking and fighting with their wives before reaching office, tend to jump the gun. Cheers!

hehe you are interesting, and here, Im checking out your journal. (btw, my journal will be most likely in spanish, and Im a whiny emotional teenager, so I'd give you the adress to my actual journal, but you'd probably get bored. However, I will still read your blog. Coz you are cool :)

Where was this?

Well a mercury spill is nothing new. Mercury spills have been going on for ages, just in a different method of "spillage." Mercury is present in fish, as you know. THey are doing nothing about it. I wonder if people who have suffered from extreme mercury poisoning can sue the EPA for their neglectful attitude?

Cool blog, I will probably add you, once my computer is operating at its usual speed.

Feel Free to add me if you like.

Being as I am a former, Print Journalism student I have to say that I fully agree with Teejnar's statement. . . There is a lot more hype in broadcast mainly television news cast but the thing to remember is that the hype they create is what makes you, stop to watch or listen and then blog about. All this means they were heard so they have met their goal, earned that huge pay check.

Yikes? I broke one a few months ago. I just cleaned it up with a piece of paper. Maybe I should have called the fire station!
