“If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts.

So we must add tritium to the list of profitable and menacing madness that is not only making our land and our rivers toxic, but is helping to turn our children's future into a death sentence. How much more evidence do we need to understand that, along with depleted uranium and plutonium, there is a perilous and shadowy connection between nuclear power and the military industrial complex?
