THE LAST TOXIC GASP OF NUCLEAR POWER
— Inside the dynamite new issue of CounterPunch magazine: John LaForge takes an unflinching survey of the state of the nuclear power industry in the wake of Fukushima: its ailing plants, leaking pipes, security threats, accumulating radioactive waste and escalating costs. David Macaray charts the end of the middle class in America over the last 50 years: declining incomes, growing debts, and mounting insecurity. Harry Browne recounts his journey by boat from Ireland to Wales to meet the family of Chelsea Manning. Lee Hall exposes the latest lethal scam of the cattle industry: a plan to slaughter elk in the Yellowstone country. Plus: Jeffrey St. Clair on reading Camus in the time of drones; JoAnn Wypijewski on watching the Super Bowl with union laborers; Mike Whitney on the return of crappy mortgages; Chris Floyd on the selling and re-reselling of Bob Dylan; Kristin Kolb on the NYT’s poverty porn; and Lee Ballinger on the art of Tiffany Gholar.
