Can we trust independent farmers to test for plutonium particles that might be traceable to the nuclear power plant explosions — or, for that matter, from the fiendish plots of terrorists? Don’t we have to rely on the incestuous cooperative efforts of the state and major corporations to protect us from such threats? Think of the children, and stay tuned to your cable news channel to keep informed!
