    Wow. Nice post, Squrlz. What a sad story. Where is the picture for this link from? Looks like a scene from a play.

    Thanks, Ani. I was delighted to see it go up--wasn`t sure it would make the cut due to the amount of reading required. I read somewhere that someone`s made a play out of the story. Kudos to the mod or Fancy for doing the research and coming up with that photo.

    Greed and corruption. It`s sad that some will go so far for money and power. People are bastards.

    I read somewhere that someone`s made a play out of the story.

    They did, but it was a short run because all the actors got cancer and died.

    true stuff. Back in the 1970`s the army went around and collected ALL of the radium painted dials in any aircraft in US museums. When you see an old aircraft now on display, often there is a big hole in the middle of the display panel!
