"About ten, fifteen years ago there was a great scare that strontium ninety was going to cause cancer..."
A bad folk singer sings about strontium, owning the sun. Men at a table discuss Strontium-91, the positive aspects of radioactive materials. A nightclub MC talks about living forever, his agent, a blind man and a cripple, etc. Panel discussion on alternative power sources: sports, human waste. A list of sound effects against a woman humming. Panel discussion: the benefits of radiation. Monologue: The trees are hung with objects. . . "on the other side" . . . "the wind does not feel the wind." Panel discussion: cancer as pure growth, progress; treadmills powering an apartment building. MC asks the time.
