There were demonstrations and rallies to make Ann Arbor a "nuclear free zone" in the mid 80' s. Of course the pinhead who organized it probably didn't know about the radiation therapy used at UM hospitals, x-rays, or incident solar flux, and gamma rays. Also would have been interesting if he'd approached the (then) Soviets about NOT nuking Ann Arbor in the event of a nuclear war. In any event he eventually graduated and the lemmings turned their attention elsewhere.

And the proof is here. All this brilliant conversation and such a deep understanding of science that one would think that a few of you graduated high school. I am only surprised there wasnt more of an objection to the idea that there was an extinction event millions of years ago.

I believe it's Berkeley, California that does have a "nuclear free zone"....signs and all. Seems they've already been dosed.

With science today largely funded by government, you knew it wouldn‘t be long before the recent asteroid encounter in Chelyabinsk, Russia would lead to well-meaning, but mostly hysterical cries that we MUST DO SOMETHING about it;  “something” that costs a lot of money; “something” that involves thick scientific studies; and- the best part- “something” that promises no results for the fifty-to-a-hundred thousand years of program costs, run by the central and federal  government of the US-of-A.

If we don’t do “something,” NOW they’ll say, we’ll risk plague, locusts, drought and the usual assortment of frogs lets loose by the...
