Good morning readers. I appreciate your visit and read. I hope you won’t consider this frivolous.
It’s Daddy Day, and there’s a growing body of shrill opinion being expressed on the Web concerning those out-of-control nuclear reactors in Japan and how Big Daddy United States needs to step up to the plate to fix it. Even though Big Daddy has no more clue than anyone else how to go about doing it.
First off, those reactors haven’t reached their full potential yet, so it’s probably too soon to have the Lincoln Memorial try to jump a motorcycle across them.
Even though PT Barnham’s loose in Washington and trying to perfect that method of solving historical difficulties, jumping a motorcycle across the problem is still considered extreme, untested, uncertain, at best.
Probably it would be better to try time-tested methods first. Some of the ways Big Daddy US has solved other pesky difficulties. Homeland Security and attempts to deal with illegal immigration might provide a model.
Or failing that, there’s always the old airbag fix:
Anyone strangled to death by an airbag isn’t going to be worrying about mutants, teeth falling out, that sort of thing.
Sending some crews of jailbirds out to pick the fallout up before it can do any damage offers some hope. Got lots of jailbirds and not-all-that-much radiation yet. If the radiation increases, hell it won’t do it faster than our number of prisons.
People who never learned to program a VCR, [including me] might find radiation detection instruments confusing, so sniffer dogs trained to detect it could answer the question of where it is and where it ain’t.
Naturally they’d have to be provided facilities.
And protection from reckless drivers.
Failing that, a little magic might help.
Or just an acknowledgement there’s a problem.
If everything else fails, this worked for grandaddy and there’s no reason to think it won’t work again.
The Japanese have never been all that receptive to allowing imports from the US, but I’ll bet they’d welcome a few shiploads of those signs. And there’s potential for a new manufacturing industry here to replace what went to Asia.
It ain’t as though there’s nothing to do in a fallout shelter.
Big Daddy’s tour d’force is entertainment. Still is. Never been better.
You can’t argue with a history of success. I say, “Let’s go for it!” What are we waiting for?
