Who Are These People?

Some of these folks are sparkling writers like Joan Trossman Bien, D’Lanie Blaze, and Margery Brown. Others are devoted activists Bill Bowling, people who are make a difference.

“Dear Mr. Collins – without getting into the content of your story, I’d like to point out to you that your quote from Ms. Winger on our staff was so badly twisted out of context that it is utterly meaningless,” began the rant that we were about to read that confirmed to us what we have found wanting in the councilman’s office — competence and follow-through.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki Commemoration

Yesterday, the Los Angeles Area Disarmament Coalition held an event to commemorate the 64th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The event began with a service at the Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple in Little Tokyo, which was followed by a “mindful walk” to City Hall.

Rocketdyne meeting tonight in Simi Valley

Rocketdyne meeting tonight in Simi Valley

It’s likely that the Radiation Rangers will attend and may have questions of the panel about our revelations that Boeing claimed that no offsite testing had been done in Runkle Canyon.

Heart Attacks or H-Bombs?

It is beyond me how the New York Times could short-shrift this weapons-grade uranium hot news angle. The article practically presented an atomic physics lesson in how this cardiac drug is produced but glanced over the fact that in order to make the stuff, the whole world is put further at risk of nuclear proliferation.
