let's talk nuclear



Hey folks. I know this might seem harsh and nit-picky, but it's not a nuc-u-lus...it's a nucleus. It's not nuc-u-lar, it's nuclear. Governor Palin (and W.) clearly did not pay attention in high school biology class.

I might go a little batty if I have to listen to four more years of someone repeatedly using this botched pronunciation.

Wow.

You are a girl after my own heart. Every time I hear this pronunciation I want to throw a brick at the TV.

I hope to get down to the city to see you soon!

I don't care how they say it, so long as they never launch them first.

That is what scares me most about Bush, McCain and especially Palin.

If one of them were president during the Cuban missile crisis the world might be a very different place than it is now.

We never did "duck and cover" drills, but my dad did have a few 55 gallon drums of emergency food and supplies in the basement.

Dear Girl MD,

My name is Barbara O’ Brien and my blogging at The Mahablog, Crooks and Liars, AlterNet, and elsewhere on the progressive political and health blogophere has earned me the notoriety of being a panelist at the Yearly Kos Convention and a featured guest blogger at the Take Back America Conference in Washington, DC.

I’m contacting you because I found your site in a prominent health reform blog search and want to tell you about my newest blogging platform —the public concern of health care and its reform. Our shared concerns include health reform, tort reform, public health, safe workplaces, and asbestos contamination.

To increase awareness on these important issues, my goal is to get a resource link on your site or even allow me to provide a guest posting. Please contact me back, I hope to hear from you soon. Drop by our site in the meantime—www.maacenter.org/blog.

Thanks,

Barbara O’ Brien
