Slashdot Technology Story ELF Knocks Down AM Towers To Save Earth, Intercoms

"The ELF (Earth Liberation Front) has claimed responsibility for destroying the primary AM towers used by radio station KRKO in Washington state. From their statement: 'AM radio waves cause adverse health effects including a higher rate of cancer, harm to wildlife, and that the signals have been interfering with home phone and intercom lines.' The poor intercom performance must have been the last straw."
It's not exactly news that there are nutters in The ELF. Thankfully, slashdotters provide some great comments. Here's my favorite:
The electromagnetic spectrum [] is not a hard concept to grasp. Radio waves are about the most harmless radiation there is. They have a lower frequency than microwaves, infrared, or ... ordinary visible light. Are they going to blow up the sun next?

Yet another group of ignorant children playing dangerous games in the adult world. Sigh.
