sharp criticism of its journalistic practice, the Ode Street Tribune has smashed its previous objective-journalism position and moved forward to initiate a glass collection and analysis in Rosslyn's Ft. Myer Heights Park. The Tribune's journalist collected many pieces of glass widely dispersed in the park grass. Careful analysis of the collected glass has yielded several newsworthy points:Underscoring its commitment to democratic journalism and open science, the Tribune has made its glass collection accessible to everyone. The collection is in a plastic bag hidden under the wooden steps. Anyone can add more glass to the collection and study the glass that has been collected. Of course, broken glass is sharp, so be careful when handling it. Gloves are highly recommended.
- The different colors and shapes of the glass indicate that it came from at least three different glass objects.
- Some pieces of glass are rather thick, and some have design elements molded into the glass. Hence at least some of the glass is not from low-cost beer bottles.
- The glass appears to be old. That's consistent with the discovery of other historic artifacts in the park.
