Remember the former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat? Well, his body is going to be exhumed next week. Seems a few month ago a Swiss lab discovered a lethal radioactive substance in biological traces on Arafat’s clothing (supplied by his wife) which may explain his sudden illness and death in a French military hospital in 2004. Many Palestinians believe Arafat was murdered by the Israelis. No good will come of this.

OK, no need to panic people, but could the residents of Vernon please report any unusual sightings of animals, with say, three heads! Oh yeah and while we are on the subject of Vernon, officials of their nuclear power plant say they have finally stopped the radioactive substance, tritium, leaking into the groundwater. Never you mind, they say there is absolutely no detectable levels of the radioactive stuff in the Connecticut River or the drinking water wells (yet) despite two leaky pipes causing the tritium to seep into the soil and groundwater. Oh deary me, the big old scare was caused by a clogged drain.
