Federal officials confirmed that a radioactive black ooze found seeping outside a Kentucky uranium enrichment plant led workers to a burial ground for radioactive debris. Contract workers chanced upon the material near an unused sanitary landfill at the Gaseous Diffusion Plant in Paducah, Ky., the Washington Post reported Sunday. The workers found the ooze July 15 while preparing to install wells to monitor another possible contamination site near the landfill, which closed in 1996.

Something was different, thought the director of such films as "Erin Brockovich," "Out of Sight" and "sex, lies and videotape." "It was like they'd been waiting for someone to ask them about this issue," Soderbergh says.
