  •  It is to say (6+ / 0-)

    an upsetting thought, but seriously until people get sick and even when they do, there is usually some explanation other than the truth.

    Like Gulf war sickness, the 9/11 rescue workers, and I'm sure there are other examples I can't remember.  Heck, my husband was heavily exposed to agent orange and the truth wasn't known about it until 25 or 30 years after Viet Nam.  However, we kept hearing stories here and there in the seventies, but at that time it was just downplayed and disputed.

    Certain violations of the social compact are too terrible to utter aloud: this is the meaning of the word unspeakable. Herman.

      Onomastic's ex-husband was also exposed, and she has much to say on the lies around that.

        Yasuragi for telling me about Onomastic's ex-husband.  Sorry I'm getting back to you so late.

        •  No problem -- fortunately, I check the (0+ / 0-)

          old ROVs before I shut them down.  There are always a few late comments.  :)
