Fabulous News of the Day

No, Brittany didn't get another tattoo.

As NV Mojo Rising says, Divine Strake is dead. Just wanted to add my own special thanks to the Western Shoshone who fought so hard for this victory.

Every once in a while the good guys do win.

Isn't it odd that I never even heard of this? Selective news is right. As a member of the middle of the country, I too see places without oceans or scenic mountains get different treatment than pretty places. I am glad for you.

Doesn't make for as good ratings as pop-star shenanigans.

Yucca Mountain is also a huge issue here: proposed nuclear waste site.

First glance it looks like a local issue but it isn't. Guess how all that nuclear waste would get to Yucca Mountain? Right across the Heartland of America.

Bet it would get national coverage when there was a mishap on say, the main highway through Denver, no?

I know there's a whole unit in the Pentagon that comes up with these mission names, but Divine Strake...what the hell does that mean?

Good they dropped it though, even if it wasn't because of the stupid name.

Congrats to the Nevada progressives! Yucca Mountain next! However, Yucca Mountain might not be such a bad idea is Dubya were the first waste produce to be buried there. ;-)

Me neither...and I'm in the shadows of the Pentagon...

WOW! That is a great story! Congrats to those brave individuals who saw this thru to the end!

I grew up during the Cold War when LOTS of nucler bombs were 'tested'. (What the hell are they testing? - We know the damn things work and blow the crap out of EVERYTHING!) WTF are they attempting to 'test'?

Thanks for this!!!!

The attorney in this case, Ray Hager, kicked #ss! And special thanks should go to Carrie Dann and Julie Fishel at the Western Shoshone Defense Project. Check it out:
