Radioactive dot

Hi Brit,

Concerning your radioactive full stop, there is a local factoid you might be interested in.  The local landfill, what once was known as a garbage dump, is protected by ultra sensitive radiation detectors.  Apparently, garbage is a potential terrorist target.  These detectors will go off if you drive by during the week after certain medical procedures that involve injecting you with radioactive tracing stuff.  I was chatting about it with the person on duty, and she said this has happened several times.  The alarm goes off and security guards rush up, pull the surprised driver out of his dump truck, and wrestle him to the ground.  That’ll teach them not to smuggle minuscule amounts of radioactive trash into our pure garbage collection.
