I was disappointed to not see that crazy dreadlocked Toxic Avenger dog the two times I have been in Butte.

- I have actually been to Butte two times while Evil Knievel week was being celebrated.  Craziest shiate I've ever seen, people drink their face off and then jump motorcycles and cars in the streets.

The Auditor died in 2003.  Might explain why you didn't see him.

I can only imagine the conversation:

Engineer:
"Well Bob, we created one of the largest environmental disasters in the Western Hemisphere. Big enough to be seen from space, toxic enough to instantly kill any bird that lands here, and in a decade it'll hopelessly pollute the region's watertable. What do we do next?"

Bob:
"We charge tourists $2 to look at it and tell the media that it'll cure cancer!"

Pure brilliance.

Go a little bit north on the Interstate, and you visit radon-infested "health" mines.

Try being there for St. Patty's Day (but don't have any orange on).  Butte is ... is..... Butte, America.  That about sums it up as best as anything can.

Radon is just a part of any below surface structure in this part of the country.

Perfect headline.

The new fungi and bacteria which formed in there are proof that nature adapts.  Which begs the question as to how well the cancer cells will adapt.
