Well, wow! Clallam County has made national news! Yes, Clallam County is where the U.S. had its first death caused by measles in 12 years. I saw it on Reuters, CNN, Yahoo! News, Google News, etc. Bill Benedict, a great believer in "there's no such thing as bad publicity" must be so pleased.
In other, more locally important news, water continues to be the story - or stories - of the day. The beach in Port Angeles is closed due to fecal contamination. Again. That is to say, again. And the rivers continue to drop and dry as the summer warmth rolls out, with a side of fireworks.
Shitty medical news...News about shitty water...Shitty news about water...Well, shit. It sure looks like a good thing that Port Angeles got the whole "Best Town EVER" thing done before this all hit. Because if you search for Port Angeles online right now, well, let's just say that even the most rose-colored of glasses are likely to be shaded closer to forest fire red at this particular point in time.
So seriously, keep a fire extinguisher handy this weekend. And you might want to stock up on bottled water, too, just in case.
