Actually, this won't completely address the problem.  Not all calls are from
people who live near or are concerned about exposure from a nuclear plant.  I
think that as Mr. Kathren suggests there needs to be controls on the labs
reporting these results, in terms of how they are acquiring and analyzing
their data.
