Yes, and for a while I was afraid to eat Hershey bars because I understood the company was in the vacinity of Three Mile Island.

Of course, with all the hysteria over nuclear power that the

Creating terror is the real objective of terrorism, isn't it?  What does
it matter that dirty bombs are ineffective at inflicting casualties, if
it puts your enemy in a panic crises?  Everyone knows that any level of
radiation will kill us all instantly, or cause us to die of cancer
within a few months.  Even the people who live in the neighborhood of
the Three Mile Island reactor disaster are still trying to sue because
they all have cancer.  The recently completed study indicating that
there is no greater risk of cancer in that area means nothing.

Spreading fear and panic was also the point of the anthrax attacks last
year.  Of course it is seldom recognized that anthrax is a common
organism in nature.  Many of us have fairly frequent contact with
anthrax vectors.  There are even occasional infections.  But nobody
seems to feel too scared about that.  Probably because, as with "dirty
bomb" contamination, the most effective prophylactic measure is
attention to regular bathing habits.

I remember when the Denver airport was shut down last year because
someone discovered a white powder leaking from a package.  It turned out
to be vanilla pudding mix.
