Explorers Club: Playas

Matt kicks off another Explorers Club meeting

Last night at CLUI, Steve Rowell reported on his recent work in Playas, New Mexico, a tiny (260 homes) company town once run by the Phelps Dodge Mining Company. The entire town of Playas was recently purchased for $5 million by the Dept. of Homeland Security so it could be turned into an anti-terrorist training center.

Instead of a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the occasion of the sale, there was a ribbon detonating ceremony. After which a simulated bomb blew up a bus and simulated bus bombing victims staggered away, carrying simulated babies and holding simulated severed limbs.
