I was stunned today when our 5:00 local news came on with the 1st story (after the obligatory shooting and traffic issues) being about Yellowstone erupting as the world's largest supervolcano...within 10 years. They went on to explain that NASA is looking to inject cold water beneath "it all" (?) at a cost of 3.4 billion dollars to cool things down and stop the danger. What really got to me was the way they just read "facts" and statistics...unsourced as far as I could tell. I do enough reading about Yellowstone, and know enough people in and around the park, that if any of this was factual as stated I would have heard some legitimate rumblings about it. I am beginning to subscribe to the idea that this is part of a very negative feeling that is festering in the country overall...along with real "fake news". At any rate...if it keeps the crowds down when we visit in June I'm not complaining!
