This article tries to appear objective but it is not and it would be good if
members of the list both read and comment on the article since it contains a
number of false statements - it claims to be fact, but it is not.

http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2011/10/17/111017fa_fact_osnos is an
abstract of this article which discusses non-existent fallout -
unfortunately, only paid New Yorker subscribers can read the article which
probably will influence many.
