Jyllian is a PhD chemist and the senior west coast editor for Chemical and Engineering News. She’s also that rare journalist, particularly in the current media market, who writes the truth in an unbiased way. An all around good egg.

Oh my. That is depressing. Who ever Jyllian Kemley is, she is a saint to keep trying to deal with the general public. Clearly people just make up the scenarios that suit them. And I wonder if they even read the facts Jyllian provides. My experience is they will stick to a good story and reject the truth no matter what saints like Jyllian say.
Truth doesn't fit in a twitter post.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Follow up reporting on the Harran settlement
Those who don't follow Jyllian Kemsley's Safety Zone blog at
may want to check out a couple of her follow up posts this week on reactions to
and myths associated with the case and settlement. She's making a valiant effort
to maintain a connection between the twitter-verse and reality. I suspect that
similar misconceptions are arising in the lab rumor-verse as well.
