    And thanks Yo, I was completely unaware we had a case of XXDRTB in the US. It is indeed a terrifying disease, even if it is unlikely to ever be a major problem in the US (though who knows for sure).

    I do have "faith" and "trust" in the (yes) US government public health officials on this disease... Now whether I have as much faith in the public health officials of other countries remains to be seen.

    By the way, if you are interested in updates on this sort of thing- e.g. want to be tapped into the collective medical mind, I highly recommend Pro Med-mail.

  9. Thanks for the link, Thai.

  10. Since I know few of you are energy dorks, anyone have any thoughts on this?

  11. "energy dorks"

    Man, I don't think I've ever even noticed Thorium on a periodic chart. To quote Wm Shatner in Airplane 2, "Why the hell aren't I notified about these things?". I looked up Alvin Weinberg, turns out he died about three years ago. I wonder if he went insane with frustration.

  12. If Thorium is really as promising as the article suggests, to me that constitutes prima facie evidence of a conspiracy to prevent its development.

    Either there are serious unresolved problems with its use that the article is glossing over or there are legions of nuclear scientists (and cognizant public policy planners) that should have been executed for high treason, especially after '73.

  13. What do you all think?

    As a big believer in conservation, I say "yes" ;-)
