Divine Strake is big news in Utah. The government is going to set off a big bomb in the Nevada desert, using a nuclear detonator and people are afraid there will be another “downwinders” situation. I’m sort of uninterested.

My stepson proposed what I thought was a great solution the other day at dinner. He said, “why don’t we just set off the bomb in the desert of Iraq?” Nobody will get hurt and there’s something for everybody in it.

I think he’s right.
