Subject: Faith-based Radiation Protection- better URL
I recently gave an invited talk to the NC Health
Physics society which has gotten some good reviews and
promises to become a "cult classic" entitled
"Faith-based Radiation Protection", and I thought It
interesting (or at least amusing) to some of you.
Warning: it is a highly-irreverent, satirical romp
which chronicles my recent travels through the
Orwellian world of NCRP and ICRP, wherein
all normal logic is seemingly abandoned (and all
thinking is based on a limited version of a universe
in which radiation is the only risk).
It also has a very low "political-correctness
coefficient", but you may enjoy; it and may also force
you to think "outside of their box" for a while .
Beyond that, I make no apology for it. Feel free to
pass it along if you like.

Also posted at this site is my report on the recent
Aug '06 ICRP stakeholders meeting held in our nations
capital (and sponsored by the French?), which I
attended as designated AAPM representative, and
which was also attended by many of our favorite .govs,
some .orgs (and a few .nuts). It also gives some
insight into what's happening, or what may happen. So
you may also wish to follow the White Rabbit down
this hole as well.
We must face the fact that the United States is neither omnipotent or omniscient that we are only 6 percent of the worlds population; that we cannot impose our will upon the other 94 percent of mankind; that we cannot right every wrong or reverse each adversity; and therefore there cannot be an American solution to every world problem.
