Why not? Nuclear radiation might help the farmers grow pinto beans the size of
cows. It's worth a try, eh?
But not to worry. The anti-nuclear lobby in New Mexico is tirelessly working
to make New Mexicans see that it may not be a good idea to continue storing
more than 2500 nuclear warheads within the Albuquerque city limits, or
anywhere else within the state, or anywhere else within the country, or the
world. This is an issue on which Mennonites, Quakers, Congregationalists,
Unitarians, Catholic peace groups, many Buddhist outfits, several synagogues
and mosques, some Hindu temples, some Sikh organizations, a whole bunch of
atheists, and veterans for peace are uniting their energies. There are times
when I think the only people who want to see nuclear weapons remain in New
Mexico are Texicans and Idajanos (or whatever citizens of Idaho are called).
I fully expect to see New Mexico completely free of nuclear weapons and
nuclear waste dumps within ten years after the end of the universe.
