Hi, Bjorn.

The STATED purpose of the law requiring permitting of all "atmospheric
chemical, biological, and radiological detectors (Note that as written
"atmospheric" applies only to chemical) it to prevent false alarms that
might panic the public.  There are people who suspect that there might
be ulterior motives.

Geiger counters? (I don't understand it)
Wouldn't it be better if there were lots of them "out there" so that the
general public learns more about natural background radiation?
