Containment facility placed over Chernobyl reactor...

There is a reality show called "River Monsters" featuring extreme angler Jeremy Wade who fishes sites around the world for dangerous and interesting game. Wade obtained permission to fish in the Chernobyl ponds inside the condemned area and documented the results. The film crew showed the abandoned city and they wore radiation badges. You would have expected Wade's first bite to produce a two headed monster but all the fish he caught appeared to be normal. It should be noted that the incredible intentional destruction of a beautiful tropical wilderness during the Truman administration at Bikini Island resulted in a relatively normal sea life today but some land areas are sill unsafe for human habitation. God knows how many American Servicemen died from the lingering effects when they were used in Atomic tests during the 40's but the media wasn't interested and still isn't.
So, should we be checking the radiation levels of the homes where Hillary voters live?
