Anne Coulter and Bill O'Reilly Talk about Radiation. Stupidity Ensues.

That tingling feeling you just got was the reemergence of something information and fascinating returning to your lives - this blog. That's right, I'm back. I'm gonna give this another shot and see how it goes. Last time around I tried to write too much about legal topics (snore), so this time I will try to write fewer entries about a wider range of topics.

Here's the return topic: Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly talking about Coulter's belief that elevated levels of radiation are good for you. So stop whining, Japan. Coulter's basis for this belief: 1) An unspecified number of scientists who do some reports on the possibility that elevated radiation could be beneficial; 2) Women tuberculosis who had chest X-rays; and 3) people who lived in a building in Taiwan built out of Cobalt 60 who didn't get as much cancer as other people.

To his credit, O'Reilly seems pretty skeptical. That is, until he attempts to disprove her theory by stating that radiation is clearly harmful because of the number of people incinerated by the bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Yes, Bill, it was the radiation that incinerated those people. Take a look for yourselves:
