While off topic for RadSafe, they are probably somewhat interesting to many of us who look beyond the strict field of radiation safety.
Which is more than can be said for some of the recent exchanges on the list....... involving politics and religion.

Happy New Year Joe,
While I find some of your ruminations entertaining, many appear to have nothing to do with the purpose for which I understood the Radsafe list to exist. Can we please stay on topic and cut down on the extraneous messages in my and others email boxes?
Thanks in advance,
