There are folks at Los Alamos who have a kind of official road show on 
dirty bombs --
giving big talks or briefings at agency after agency.

Part of the ritual:"These are not weapons of mass destruction. They are 
weapons of mass disruption.
Most of the damage they would do would be due to the panic they induce 
because of the scary word
'nuclear.' Yes, if it happens, go home, have a shower, close the doors and 
windows just to be safe..
but don't worry... listen to the radio."

But then again, I suppose there are people who debate Chernobyl itself to 
this day.
