From science to politics: a hazardous journey
Placeholder Image
It's a stifling, humid July day as I struggle with my proposed column on the interface of science and politics. As if fate had intended, I have an invitation from Lincoln Grahlfs, Vice Com- mander of the National Association of Atomic Vets, to view a traveling exhibit in Madison, the "Hiroshima-Nagasaki Legacy." This display is composed of photographs, poetry, and artwork designed to inform the public on the consequences of nuclear weapons, including effects of postwar nuclear testing.I arrive too late for the formal presentation, but in air-conditioned comfort study the posters and photographs.
