Here on the northern California coast I have eaten the last dungeness crab that I can trust to not be irradiated. This delicacy of our northwest coast is treasured by so many. Now the nucleur plants of Japan have put all northern pacific sea life in danger. But the beautiful dungeness crab will not be safe to eat from this day forward. And, that makes a grown man cry........

With my history of commercial truck driving, I have a little bit to relate, that may be, or may become, relevant.
At some locations, along the way of the drive in, the semi rigg passes through a radiation detector. Yup, some nogoodnik might try to schlep some nastiness in, and that is not to be had.
Some time soon, variations on that detection technology might be employed. Any, catch of the day, would pass through it. The closer to the catch, as in, on the boat, the better, put in any case, as close to the point of extraction as practicable.
I thought of this because I'm a seafood lover too. I've recently taken to enjoying Kelp, and other ocean vegetation. Now this, seven tons / hour!
The people of the seafood industry will not want their business to crash for the loss of consumer confidence.

Time To Start Treating Guns Like Abortions

It's time we start regulating guns like we regulate abortions.

Because it just makes sense that we regulate these individual rights in the same way.

Because the Supreme Court, in the Heller case, concluded that there is an individual right to own firearms found in the Second Amendment - just like they ruled in Roe v. Wade that there is an individual right to have an abortion found in the Fourth Amendment.
