Today's Cartoon: Litvinenko Radiation Investigation Grounds British Aircraft

You know, for something that is supposed to be a rare radioactive element, British authorities sure seem to be finding a lot of it; especially on British Airways planes, which makes me wonder if this is somehow connected with the Litvinenko case, or if the airline food is really THAT bad ;)

Experts have attributed the growing list of contaminated locations around London to the possibility that the polonium-210 may have been spread through people's bodily fluids. If that's the case, then "exposure" to radiation may not be the only thing that the British public needs to be worried about.

All I can say is that it's a good thing British health officials are on top of the situation and taking all the necessary measures to ensure public's safety, because if radiation contamination can spread as easily as fecal matter through a crowded pub, then London is definitely one of the worst places in the world for it to happen.
