How to get quoted by Reuters

1. Write a quirky! blog! post! about the haze.

2. Make your email address available on your blog(s).

3. Answer email promptly when interested journalist wants to chat about living under haze conditions.

4. In fact, spend half an hour (or so) on the phone with very nice and interested journalist, chatting airily (pun fully intended) about living under haze conditions last year.

The result: I get to inspire the opening anecdote in the news story, "Asia struggles to stop relentless 'pollution calendar'" (thanks, Dad!), even though in terms of being quoted, there's only a brief and none-too-sparkly quote.

Ah well, you can't have everything.
