RE: Fwd Duct Tape/now TMI

Funny-  I grew up down the street from the concrete silo where the remnants
of the Manhattan Project were housed.  One summer they decided that they
couldn't leave the stuff in the silo anymore, because it was decaying and if
we ever had an earthquake it might fall down.  So,  they prepared a site in
the ground right next to it and then OPENED up the silo took the stuff out
and buried it.  Go figure-  I also don't glow nor have 2 heads- even though
we grew up with a radiation monitor outside our house that had all kinds of
crazy readings on it (they sent a report every quarter- but never any advise
if there were unusual readings).

Auralie - I went to school in Carlisle - 18 miles from Three Mile Island
during that little fiasco. So many people panicked and split - they had
to cancel classes. Those of us that stayed behind neither glow nor grew
two heads. Tempest in a teapot. I for one refuse to give into panic. It
solves nothing.
