Up to the Minute: WTF News

Couldn't sleep last night and ended up watching Up to the Minute overnight news... a recipe for conspiracy theory nightmares.

By now you have probably all heard that Denver was one of the 24 cities where they found Drugs in the Water. I found this statement in the story to be very alarming: "Arlington, Texas, acknowledged that traces of a pharmaceutical were detected in its drinking water but cited post-9/11 security concerns in refusing to identify the drug." Telling people what drugs are in their bodies is a 9/11 security concern? WTF?

There was also a story on the therapeutic interchange whistleblower. In googling to find a link to post here I found a wide variety of coverage and perspective on this one. The CBS story was in their typical government-waste-tax-dollars tone. I am sure that if I took the time to read everything it would boil down to Pharma's evilness.

And to top it off I am tired from middle of the night news watching.

The conspiracy theorists are going to elect our next president. That scares the crap out of me ... just so you know.

What really disturbs me about this story is how the pharmaceuticals got into our watersupply ... human waste. Shouldn't this story read 'traces of fecal matter and urine found in our water supply'. Ok, now I'm grossing myself out.
