  • Good morning, friends. The housewives of Oak Ridge are speaking to the outside world from behind the barbed-wire fence. Yes, we're still here. Did you forget about us? We just wondered, because we didn't find ourselves mentioned in the Smyth Report. We are the ones who do the chores for the men who make atomic bombs, and we bring up their children, bomb or no bomb. The kids are two years older now, and we are at least ten. That's the way you grow old — fast, when the going is tough.
