More on the SciFi channel doomsday show

As you know by now because I am shilling it constantly, the SciFi channel is airing a show at 9:00 p.m. tonight on doomsday scenarios. The producers asked if I could travel to NYC to do some pre-show press stuff, but unfortunately I couldn't get away (and I am such a media whore you just know that has to be true).

However, the show did sponsor a press conference in DC, and it was covered (not terribly seriously, of course) by the Washington Post. It's a funny (and short) article, so take a look. Now I really wish I had gone on the junket; astronaut Ed Lu was there, and I met him at James Randi's The Amaz!ng Meeting in January. He is a great guy, and I like him a lot.

Oh well, the obvious conclusion is: when offered a chance to travel on someone else's nickel, take it.

Anyway, after I watch the show tonight I'll post a review as soon as I can.
