Two Journalists, Both Nauseous

What are the chances?

Both The Nation‘s Editor and Publisher Katrina vanden Heuval, who boarded a crack of dawn train to D.C. this morning for a Midterm panel, and the Washington Examiner‘s Features Editor Jacque Jo Bland, shared a feeling over the weekend – one literally, one metaphorically.

That would be nausea.

Vanden Heuval got the lucky metaphorical version. “Knew some of this, but sick, nauseous reading this,” she wrote on Twitter. “Nazis Were Given ‘Safe Haven’ in U.S., Report Says.” Read report here. Bland, however, got whacked with a preposterously real evening of vomiting and car trouble.

Her tweet: “Tonight, in less than 40 minutes, I got a car towed, threw up a few times and resigned myself to failing. Again. Miserable.”

(On note of natural healing capabilities, ginger is said to ease nausea symptoms.)
