I was born in Pasco, Washington, one of three towns that form the Tri-Cities region along the southern border of that state. The other two are Kennewick, where my grandfather was the mayor for a time and where my cousins still run the Farmer’s Exchange, tho I hear it tends as much to the gardening needs of engineers as it does to farmers these days. The engineers all work in Richland, home of the Hanford Site, the nuclear facility first used to construct the bomb dropped on Nagasaki. That is the subject of this chilling tale in today’s Los Angeles Times. Clean up of this site is only 20 years behind schedule.
