    and we

    Dow Chemical, how low can they go? Here's a hint:
    On December 2nd a peaceful march of 200 women survivors from Bhopal (India, 1984) delivered toxic waste from the abandoned Union Carbide (recently acquired by Dow) factory back to Dow's Indian headquarters in Bombay with the demand that Dow take responsibility for the disaster and clean up the site. Dow obviously has other ideas because they are suing survivors for about US$10,000 for "loss of work". Hmm, funny because only one Dow employee came to speak with the protestors, but thousands lost their lives in this incident. Who should sue whom?

  2. Red Cross under attack

    so much for being a hero

    I remember giving blood recently at work. It was a troubling experience, I had not drank enough water over the previous days and had a hard time filling up the bag. I left frustrated and vowed to not let it happen again.

    Apparently that doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things. As the Red Cross has been not doing their job. I know it's not a very lucrative job, taking blood from one person and bringing it to another. Yet somehow I find that the idea of cutting corners a bit more unnerving when compared to the contracters making imperfections in my parents house. Or the guy who didn't want to install a new cable line, because it would be work that would require more than 5 minutes.

    I hope that the FDA slaps the Red Cross around and calls it Shirley. Maybe I should start my own blood drive, where I take the blood to the patient myself, pending bi-weekly blood tests of course...

    It may require more work on my part, but at least I'm doing work. And I can guarantee the blood is pure.
