Watch out for the ones that sound like Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale.
Sad but true. A friend who lived on the rez was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. The doc who examined asked, What on Earth happened to your tonsils? I knew: he had x-ray radiation treatment for tonsillitis, long after it had stopped being used in the “civilized” world.
Good one! Reminds me of the Jeff Foxworthy yarn about a relative who was looking at the La Brea tar pits. He opined, “I didn’t think they would come in this close to the city.”
The natural uranium on the Navajo Reservation is a big problem, especially where there are mine tailings. It is a major source of cancer on the rez.
That is really twisted! I love it!
Hobbes is “channeling” Calvin’s dad.
I’ve seen the movies! He will become enormous, taller than five men… oh, yeah.
Around here, too. Even before the uranium mining it was in a lot of the water north of Flagstaff.
All the uranium we use comes from the ground… it just gets worse when we seek out big deposits and disturb them.
We could, but it wouldn’t help me out enough to make it worthwhile.
