For his part, Grant is looking for items that illustrate the atomic culture of the era. (The Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas has a gift shop that sells Atomic Fireballs.) "We would really love to have the contents of a bomb shelter, for example," he says. "There are some up here in Arvada, but we haven't been able to find one whole."

Even so, the museum's boardmembers are finding something new every day. "There are so many stories, it's hard to keep on task," Garcia says. "We found out that the postmaster of this facility hated Rocky Flats – and he worked there twenty years!"

I Know! Let's build a super hiway right through Rocky Flats and call it the Jefferson Parkway. Let's develop the areas to within a few miles of ground zero! This historic area will attract business and residents who will be proud to have children born with mutations, in honor of our nuclear past.Yea that's it!
