RUSH: Here's the audio sound bite, San Mateo, California, yesterday. NBC Bay Area correspondent Damian Trujillo interviewing the Surgeon General Regina Benjamin during a discussion about nuclear preparedness and the reports of people buying iodide. The question was asked of the Surgeon General: "Is this appropriate?"
BENJAMIN: It's definitely appropriate. We have to be prepared. We've learned from anything, in my experience in Katrina, we need to be as prepared as we can. The more you're prepared, ummm, the better you can be, the more lives we save, the less disability.
RUSH: Right. So buy more iodide.
