No matter how long and hard I think, I cannot figure out why "Seussical! The Musical" creators Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty claim complicated and busy choreography makes it harder to follow their show's story. Dance sequences in Mercury Summer Stock's production of Seussical, which plays through Aug. 25, are hardly simple. Yet, I could follow the story just fine, thank you as I am sure was the case for other members of the audience. In fact, the choreography in this production is quite imaginative and imagination is one of Seuss' major themes.

Concerning the phrase "dirty bombs" in the media, the public's general knowledge is that terrorists plan to scatter some form of radioactive material around public areas using normal explosives to spread the contaminant. But the U.S. has detonated thousands of similar dirty bombs over the battlefields of Iraq to the tune of 320 tons in 1993 and 75 tons in 2003, far more than any terrorist could ever hope to spread in attacks on America. The nuclear industry magnanimously gives their "nuclear waste" to the U.S. military free of charge, which then molds the waste into super-dense, depleted uranium bullets that can cut through a tank's armor like a hot knife through butter. The shell vaporizes on contact and blasts radioactive, DU plasma through the armor, then condenses into a dust that settles in an area several yards on and around the target. This radioactive dust is so fine that it is easily inhaled by Iraqi children who routinely play on and around these relics of war. By some research accounts, radiation levels around these war relics is up to 1900 times normal, and since 1993 the incidence of birth defects, fetal malformation and cancer among the Iraqi population has increased by more than 600 percent. In addition, the incidence of cancer among American soldiers who handle DU bullets is several times that of the general population and exposure to contaminated areas has been related to Gulf War Syndrome.

These are the last days of summer. Yes, I know summer officially ends toward the end of September, but for teachers and students, summer actually ends when school begins which is less than two weeks away. The countdown to the end of summer begins in late July or early August, when department stores already start displaying back-to-school items. I know the end of summer is coming soon when the Erie County Fair starts, and school is almost on top of us when as this week the Huron County Fair takes place. I was taking my usual evening walk and trying to come up with a topic for this week's column, but my mind kept drifting to making plans for what I'll be teaching during the first week of school. That, too, is a sign that summer is almost over.

The attorney representing a fired Huron County Department of Job and Family Services employee said the timing looks suspicious. Toledo attorney Marilyn Widman also believes the county is involved in a "smear campaign" against her client. Nichole "Nicki" Baker was fired Tuesday based on allegations she threatened an HCDJFS client, used profanity repeatedly with the same woman and accessed pornography using the agency computer, HCDJFS Interim Director Lowell Etzler said earlier. Baker, a screener since March 7, 2005, was hired as a clerical specialist Jan. 12, 2004.
