I'm not sure if anybody saw it nationally at all, but here in New Orleans radioactive material was found under the street in a residential neighborhood and was suddenly removed. They just said how high the radioactivity was: it was high enough to give you your yearly allowed dose in ONE HOUR.
A big pile of non naturally occurring radium. It's been kept quiet and the news has been ignoring it after the initial report. In a predominantly black neighborhood, of course.
@desitively Ugghhh. Johnny B is going to just say, 'Radium? Never heard of her'
@desitively a couple sources for people who haven’t heard about this & wanna learn more:
A Mastodon instance for New Orleans residents, ex-pats and (respectful) visitors and fans.
