How scary to learn this week that in December, congressional investigators smuggled radioactive material in the trunks of rental cars across borders with Canada and Mexico. It was no comfort that the radiation alarms went off, either, because phony documents were sufficient to persuade U.S. Customs and Border Protection inspectors that the cargo should get through anyway.
Glad it was only a test. Next time, though, it could be the makings of a dirty bomb.
