TRANSGLOBAL SPECIAL REPORT. 4:22 P.M.
"This is Shannon Gardner in downtown St. Louis with Tomiko Harrington, who discovered the comet that bears her name. Tomiko, how has life changed for you during the last few days?"
"Well, it's really been very exciting. I've lost count of the number of interviews I've done today. I'll be on the Jack Kramer Show tonight on CNN, and on The Today Show tomorrow morning. I've even been called by some people who want to work with me on a book."
"Any plans along those lines?"
"Oh, I don't think so. What's to tell? I… just happened to find a comet."
"You were going to say something else?"
"I almost said I was lucky enough to find a comet. But it really hasn't been very lucky, has it?"
