  1. Did this story ever appear in Whole Earth Catalog, CE Quarterly, or some earlier "alt" publication?

    I remember passing it to a colleague in ?1991?, identical: "them's for the college hall."

  2. Stewart – I can't help but think of your stance in support of nuclear power when hearing this.  Is leaving toxic material that's persistent for thousands (even hundreds) of years, a way to "run a culture."  Seems clear that nuclear power is the exact opposite of this story.
