Tips on Beating Down the Conservative Menace
It was probably the work of some peon who had to furnish the headline and grabbed a bit from the first paragraph:The U.S. has lost control of a spy satellite that may contain hazardous materials, and it could hit the Earth over the next two months...Maybe this stuff is computer-generated, much like the comments from the anonymii are?
Of maybe it's alluding to this paragraph: ""If the satellite is as big as we think it is -- about as big as a school bus -- then parts of it could survive the fiery re-entry and hit the Earth," space analyst Randy Atwood told CTV News."That is, a small satellite will burn up before actual impact; a large one might leave a crater.
"... unlikely to evaporate."
Well, you've got to demonize the US somehow with this bit of news. "George Bush's right-wing spy satellite purposely crashes into Mother Earth as symbolic gesture about how he feels about Kyoto." Is that more accurate?
That sounds more passive than what some of the other headlines in the US say:American spy satellite 'the size of a bus' is out of control and hurtling towards EarthDisabled Spy Satellite Threatens EarthHurtling and Threatens! Sounds more dangerous somehow than the passive "falling."
