This isn’t a directly political post by any means although there are certainly political undertones. But the skeletal remains of two young people were found on state controlled property in Idaho by state fish and game employees. The big question is: are these contemporary murder victims or accidently exhumed burials from the period when the Oregon Trail was active. All of that is interesting…but the weird first step that authorities are undertaking to identify the remains is Bomb Carbon Dating.

Essentially anyone born in the last half of the 20th century or later can have their era identified by the amount of radiation in their bones as a result of atmospheric atomic bomb tests carried out after World War II. I feel so much better now.
