What Else She Said

I really backed into it... My son was a junior or senior at Cambridge School of Westin when they had a law day and somebody came and talked about the possibility of nuclear annihilation. And he started becoming more and more obsessed about it. In the meantime, [my husband] John...got involved with him. So everybody was sort of looking at these issues and talking about these issues. And then John was invited to go with a group of physicians and public health people to the nuclear test site after Chernobyl, to protest the fact that the United States was still doing nuclear testing in the face of this, the medical and the social hazards of that. And he invited me to go and said, 'You know it's a wonderful thing to go.' I said no, I really didn't have time... So John asked each one of our sons and they all said yes. So I said, 'Well, I'm not going to stay home if the whole family is going.'
