Beware of journalists...

This is the best article about the 'State of Ecstasy' conference that I have yet found:

http://www.salon.com/people/feature/2001/02/05/xconf/index.html

I am unhappy with the article as it misquoted both of my friends Vanessa and Joe but this is a common problem with journalists unfortunately.

I am going to have my first shift in the Emergency Department with my preceptor tomorrow. I am stressed, anxious not to make errors. I want to make a good impression. I also need to regain my 'free time' to read and respond to my LJ friends, to resume the regularly scheduled volunteering, and other fun productive activities.

In answer to Konundrum, I both love and hate my chosen profession. It is helping people in distress, the field of knowledge is a good and useful to have, it pays well, and the hours available to work are found almost nowhere else. Things that I hate about my job:....

Almost time for the DanceSafe Bay Area meeting...

good article!
The way I see it, The media needs something to blow out of proportion, and thats just ecstasy. it was Weed, then marilyn manson, then boy bands of lesser things, now the highlight is ectasy. Although I do not support the drug (I am highly against any substance of the sort,) I do think its being blown out of propotion. they make it seem like all ravers do is take whip-its and drop ecstasy, which is hardly the problem. I could rant on and on about this, but the article says it better than I do.
