I could not agree more. I also think that the role media is playing in
Florida is pathetic, stories from the Tribune paint a picture of
community support and heroism. It will be very difficult in such a
paternalistic environment to find the support and concern necessary to
discuss and get information to address fears and concerns about adverse
health effects. I think Tony's suggestion about a community gathering
would be the most important thing people could do in a situation like
this. I would suggest however avoiding the library or any other building
with a controlled or ducted air system.
