- Brad Linaweaver, Dafydd ab Hugh, and Sachiko ab Hugh have started the Big Lizards blog, which has one of the coolest graphics ever.
I blogged about Martin Cruz Smith's Wolves Eat Dogs
a few days ago, which involved
the Chernobyl nuke disaster. It relied somewhat on
maximizing the death toll caused by the fallout
from the reactor explosion. If you're interested,
there's a debunking of those apparently exaggerated numbers
this morning by Michael Fumento at Tech Central Station.
Wolves Eat Dogs is
still a good book, but please note that it takes place
in a fictional universe.
Communism still sucks, though. You don't want Commies running your nuclear plants or your economy or your government. Just in case you thought otherwise from the above.
- And even though the NYT op-ed columnists have ostensibly vanished behind the veil of pay-me "Times Select", Bobby Musil lifts the veil and trashes "Herr Doktorprofessor" anyway.
