We present it here exactly as it was written, capital letters and all: "In the twenty years since the Chernobyl tragedy, the world's worst nuclear accident, there have been nearly [FILL IN ALARMIST AND ARMAGEDDONIST FACTOID HERE]."

This seems to fit in perfectly with this post from The Confidentials.  If you're a fan of Trodgor the Burninator, then it's a must read, especially this comment.
