CD Sent by Hatch Destroyed by Mail Decontaminating Equipment

WASHINGTON, DC -- A CD of Olympics music featuring several LDS performers was destroyed by mail decontaminating equipment last week when Utah Senator Orrin Hatch tried to send the CD to Interior Secretary Gale Norton. The copy of the CD "Light Up the Land" was sent off to be decontaminated, and returned looking like it had been put through a microwave.

"The end product was unfortunately that the CD itself looks as if it was zapped in a microwave oven for just under two hours and then thrown on a broiler and put on high heat for just a while longer to finish it up," Interior spokesman Mark Pfeifle said Monday. The CD included performances by Gladys Knight, Donny and Marie Osmond and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Hatch plans to get Norton a new copy of the CD.
