Eat yer spinach

Seriously… is this story THAT big of news?  CNN.com has had the story in the headlines since it broke.  Not only that, but they have 3 different streaming videos where you can hear the latest discoveries in the case.  One news source I saw (along with probably dozens more) has a timeline of the events.  Time.com is already predicting the next great spinach scare.  I’ve yet to see somebody try to link this to terrorism (check that, I’ve yet to see a remotely credible news source link this to terrorism, but the stories are out there), but you know somebody at Reuters is just waiting to drop that bomb.  Watch out everybody, those crazies in the Middle East are going to unleash their next master plot… to give 170 or so people a bad case of indigestion!  The horror!

Let’s face it… less than 200 people nationwide have gotten sick.  At least one person has died, which stinks, but if they died because of e.coli, they probably wouldn’t have made it through the flu season anyway.

I just don’t get it… Thailand just had their prime minister overthrown, the US is doing something really sneaky with Hugo Chavez right now, the situation with Iraq and Iran is still going on, and much more.  All of these stories, and nobody can talk about anything but spinach?  Can’t we get Brett Favre to get pulled over for drunk driving so that can be in all the headlines for a week or so.
