Editor's Note: We here at Rubber & Plastics News have a long history of bringing you news and features about the rubber industry. Stories on expansions, acquisitions, new technology and meeting coverage are found in our print issues, on our website and in other digital offerings.
But we also know that there's a lot more to the rubber industry. Things you won't read about every day. That's why we are starting this weekly blog called the "Wacky World of Rubber." By being in the rubber industry, like us, you probably look at the world from a different perspective. Just last week, Miles Moore posted a Facebook item about a"Law and Order" rerun from years ago where allergenic latex gloves were the murder weapon.
The "Wacky World of Rubber" will have few boundaries. Our entire editorial staff will participate and bring you items that are a bit off the beaten path. You may read about anything from little known rubber applications to bargains you can find online to rubber in sports anecdotes. There may even be an occasional movie review based on its rubber content—or lack thereof.
Above all, we hope you enjoy this. And if you want to send us any ideas, please share them with Erin Pustay Beaven, our online content editor, at [email protected].
I'm going to let you in on a little secret. After covering the tire and rubber product industry as a journalist for nearly three decades, it changes the way I look at the world.
But because you're also connected to the industry, you may have noticed that about yourself as well.
