CBS filed a pair of features to instill fear about our food and water. Armen Keteyian claimed an Exclusive for yet more alarm about Yuletide terrorism. This time he raised an alert about ricin and cyanide being laced onto restaurant salad bars and hotel food buffets in hotels. The plot is dubbed Operation Hemorrhage and is part of the suspected scheme hatched by al-Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula to tie us into knots with a series of frequent yet insignificant threats. Bill Whitaker warned about increased levels of chromium-6 in municipal water supplies. He glamorized the latest environmental research by rerunning an Early Show appearance by Erin Brockovich, the activist who inspired the eponymous hit movie about the toxin. Brockovich's latest mission is to clean up the drinking water in Midland Texas.
