The Uranium DragonWho knew, but Uranium ore is mined and we have a major deposit in Southern Virginia. Legislators have been heavily lobbied to lift the ban on mining, but they have to consider the risk to human health.

Old ScoutPriests and ministers used to say only humans go to Heaven, but it seems they have equivocated to please dog owners. We don’t know if the churches are ruling that dogs have souls or if they only can get in on a family pass.
