Review Marathon this weekend! (link in my profile)

I really like this. The alliteration in the first line was nice. I also like the use of the word bejeweled it was an interesting choice. I also liked the title, which I'm assuming is referring to the newscaster. I always find it ironic how cheerful they sound when they talk about stories like this. Well done.

Great conveying of emotions in the reaction of an event. Powerful.

This conveys a persons reaction to a faraway threat very well. Well said in so few words.

Intriguing, with a certain ominous resonance.

"Nuclear nightshade" - great term.

Bejeweled calm is a striking description.
