Just to let y'all know, I did a short interview with the Canadian CBCRadio about the rumors and speculation on the 'net leading up to the NASA announcement about the Mono Lake arsenic bacteria (here's a direct link to the audio player). I also provided a very short quote about this to Radio Free Europe as well. I know, this news is falling off everyone's radar pretty quickly, which is to be expected. I may yet write my thoughts up about news embargoes and how media who use them shoot themselves in the foot. Sigh.
