I hope I have not been misunderstood:
My reply was not intended to ridicule the person who is obviously mentally
insane -  I feel sorry for anybody being in this condition, but I wanted to
point out that media news, TV programmes etc focussing on "hazards" of
nuclear energy and radiation can easily cause such perceptions for labile
persons. Nevertheless I believe, if the news on radiation hazard would not
be broadcast those people would easily find some other topics to be afraid

Sorry, if my message was misunderstood.

More evidence that exposure to the media does, in fact, cause brain damage.

BOULDER, Colo. — A man caught puncturing the tire of a Boulder police car
and who is accused of slashing tires on about 50 other vehicles through the
city told police he blames "radiation" from Rocky Flats and his relationship
with his mother for the vandalism spree, police said Friday.

Alexander Kabelis, 31, of Boulder, was arrested Thursday night on suspicion
of criminal mischief and carrying a concealed weapon.


She said the man's final rationale was that "radiation poisoning from the
Rocky Flats production facility" caused him to target the tires.
