Subject: Faith-based Radiation Protection- better URL

 Dear colleagues:

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
might be 
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.

You may access the PPT presentation using the link 

If that doesn't work try 

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.
