[ RadSafe ] New Radiation Protection Unit? The Taylor (Ty)

This is great George!  

However, in fairness to the many fine 'Goldbergs' who should rightly take
umbrage, I suggest that it instead be just named the "Rube." 

Also, of course, while it is in the purview of NCRP, it is not in the purview
of ICRP, but rather ICRU, which, IIRC, has expressed some disdain for the
unscientific nature of this whole construct of ICRP/NCRP nonsense of applying
(implying) scientific units to the unmeasurable and unknowable.

Regards, Jim Muckerheide
