A-Bomb Doom to Hang Over Bikini For Decades



March 24, 1947

Today in New York, Col. Stafford Warren, M.D., chief of medical and radiological safety of last summer's Crossroads Operation, now Dean of the UCLA Medical School, predicted that Bikini Lagoon and its twenty islands should remain depopulated for decades, at the very least, until radiation returns to safe levels.

Hey, Kim and Nathan:

This is a solid, solid idea for a blog. I've blogged it over at LAVoice.org: - and added it to our blogroll. I hope it brings you some traffic.

I'm a devoted reader of James Ellroy and armchair historian of L.A.'s legacy of nuclear tech development, so you hit me where I live: I'm excited to keep track of 1947Project on a daily basis. Any chance you'll be adding an RSS feed or a daily calendar?

Thanks for the positive feedback and for spreading the word, Mack. Much appreciated!

This feeding business is a little new to me, but I know we do have an automatic XML feed at http://1947project.blogspot.com/atom.xml, which I've just added to the the sidebar links. I also signed the blog up at feedburner.com, with the option to translate feeds into various formats, and hopefully that covers most of the bases. If I'm missing something obvious, perhaps a kind, feed-savvy reader will let me know. -Kim

Nice blog. May I suggest you add a link to the title that brings the reader to "home". I was linking to you and couldn't find a simple top level URL on your site. Or you could add a home button.

Thanks for the suggestion, Jim. I've added a "Home" link to the sidebar. If anyone knows how to code a blogger title so it's clickable and takes one home, please let me know. Don't want to mess with the template too much!

Whoops, hmmm. That link doesn't work (http://1947project.blogspot.com/atom.xml), but the one on your home page does:

Tarnation! Okay, the bad link in the sidebar is gone, and anyone seeking the feed is directed to the orange XML button at the upper right of the page. Thanks, Mack!
