    My mistake to pull a random source article from the net. I pulled it to raise the issue for discussion without looking at the specific agenda of the publishing group. Couldn't agree with you more about nuc. power - if we don't go that way soon we will have bigger problems than any can imagine (I think). M y father recently designed a thorium reactor core that (on paper anyway) effectively consumes its fuel rods in the chain reaction of starting the new ones going. It could be a near zero waste nuc. reactor. That's a separate discussion though. The really important point here is one that you brought to the table. If you look at the history of data from Sandia Labs, I think you will find that if they are admitting a minor link between D.U. and leukemia & birth defects, then there is a serious problem. Those scientists will not let onto a problem unless they are absolutely one hundred percent sure it's a problem. They have jobs to think about.

    Thats like saying that 70 percent of Minority arrests (specific cultural back grounds that stick out more than others) are racist, even though the City is 70 percent minority! (with the cancer thing)

    Even though thats not really a minority when you look at that.

    Which city did that data come from Nep. AK? I'm failing to see how you could connect the possible racism of 70% of arrests of a certain ethnic/cultural persuasion with the demographics of a city. That's precisely the kind of fuzzy math that I am trying to make sure is not involved with this possible global issue. Unless you are saying it's more justifiable to be a racist thug of a cop if you are in a city with a larger percentage of black/hispanic/asian populations. I can't really get your connection with the discussion here. Are you just coming into this with blind antagonism? This is potentially a bonafied issue for the entire world to consider. I was bringing it to the table (in my sardonic way) for peoples responses. I think we only need responses that address the topic though, rather than red herrings about race issues. Thanks--

    Is this a freudian slip? Someone has a problem with the idea that African Americans and Hispanics get profiled unfairly by the "justice system" in our society. Maybe you should do some homework. How often do they ask to search your car when you get pulled over? (This precludes the giant assumption that you are a white mutt like me)

    Ahh, you're right, I was in perhaps too serious a mood last night-- You need hone your skills at name calling though, "stupid" kind of sounds like a little kid whose angry at his mommy.
