Still amazingly humid. 60 degrees, linen shirt, Rangoon suit, and sweating like it's July -- at 9:30 pm!

Lovely weather during my walk to work this morning. Sun shining, light breeze, cool enough for a sweater, selvedge denim, and some boots.

I totally want to wear a hazmat suit on the subway. Not becuase it's needed, but because I think it would be funny.

A woman I know had a nuclear stress test a few days ago. The tech tells her she'll have small levels of radiation in her body for 24-36 hours or so after the test, lessening the more time passes. The day after she's on the train and feels like a man is too close to her. Gets off on Penn, is walking and feels the guy close to her and she starts to freak and walk faster. Guy grabs her elbow, she recoils and he says "I'm undercover NYPD, I've got this meter here which is telling me that you are raidiating. What are you carrying with you? Have you had any medical procedures recently? Show me your ID " she explains to him the test and he takes down the doctors info, her info etc and lets her go.

When I worked at the WH, a guy I worked with had the same kind of thing. Ironically or not, he was the NSC proliferation expert. Anyway, apparently (I didn't know this until that moment) there are radiation sensors built into the Georgian woodwork doorframe around the entrance to the West Wing. One day we were going in for a meeting and as soon as we passed through the entrance (side by side), three huge Secret Service sides of beef got up, grabbed him by the upper arm and said "Come with us please, sir" and he was gone. I was stunned.

Then I saw him the next day and I said, "_____, WTF was that?" And it was a medical radiation treatment. They accepted his explanation and let him go.

These days the sensors are probably disabled.

No greater invention than the tube top.
