Spinach, honeybees highlight this week Land Line Media Blog

| 9/14/2007

From the somber introspection of the 9/11 anniversary to the Nancy Drew-like investigation of “The Case of the Missing Honeybees,” it was another big week on the Land Line Media Blog.

Staff Writer Clarissa Kell-Holland kicked the week off with an entry on produce hauling. As the resident “leafy greens girl,” Kell-Holland is baffled by the fact that – a year after a spinach E. coli outbreak – produce haulers are still working without a net. Or in this case, a written set of procedures.

Tuesday saw the return of the infamous – or some might say, notorious – Columnist Bill Hudgins, who gave us his own unique spin on the Mexican pilot program. Not surprisingly, he was able to tie it to the movie “Forrest Gump.” You’ll have to read it for yourself to understand how he pulled that one off.

Wednesday marked the six-year anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and with it came an entry from Staff Writer Charlie Morasch. Morasch takes a look at what our country has gone through in the past six years, and raises the question of whether relinquishing certain civil liberties have made us safer.

Thursday marked the first blog entry by Copy Chief Coral Beach. Beach confesses to being more than a little “green” – and we don’t mean “inexperienced.” She takes a well-deserved swing at Big Oil and its attempts to take care of pollution by “going green” in its own special way – with money and payoffs, of course.
