         This aircraft carrier has a crew of 
approximately 5500 sailors.  Are we to assume 
that only eight of them claim to have been 
exposed --- or to be cynical, that only eight of 
them want to get in on this gravy train?

         According to the article at this link, 
the lawyer, Garner, says, "one of the sailors now 
has cancer and recently had a baby with birth 
defects."  Cancer now has a latency period of 
less than two years??  At the end of the article, 
Garner says TEPCO "lulled" the entire world into a false sense of security.


         This Paul Garner character is based in 
Encinitas, a city on the coast about 30 miles 
north of San Diego.  Anyone here from Southern CA ever heard of him?
