Green Eggs And Ham
Toxic waste contamination really may bring about radioactive eggs one of these days. As if there weren't enough worries in our country already, here comes the news that our regular breakfast fare may soon have an accompanying warning label - "Eat At Your Own Risk". Time will come when there may no longer be eggs Benedict, deviled eggs, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, fried eggs, boiled eggs, or even the humble balot, to enjoy altogether. If we continue to allow factories/incineration plants that bring about toxic waste dumping in our rivers and pollution to the air we breathe to operate, this WILL lead to dire consequences.
In the case of Ukrainian leader Viktor Yushchenko, tainted eggs could have been one of the contributing factors for the drastic change his face seemed to have undergone in a matter of months. If we hadn't seen his pictures from before, we would never be able to believe that he actually used to look like Rock Hudson's brother.
Although Viktor Yushchenko's malady looks to be deliberately orchestrated and willfully executed per the machinations of his political opponents, the potential havoc-wreaking situation in the town of Cavite may just cause someone near and dear to us to show up with the same symptoms one of these days. No evidence of a diabolical plan, though, equates to zero government action. Meantime, we are just sitting ducks.
