Nuclear Energy: Is it worth it?

  • Jul 9, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 4:39PM

In an era of depleting natural resources and energy supplies, the world has finally begun to look to other sources to provide our booming population with its power needs. Candidates for the next main power source are mostly environmentally based, such as tidal, solar and wind power. Another prospective source comes from nuclear energy; strong and mighty. Nuclear energy, aside from being able to provide a large quantity of power for our disposal, is too unstable and harmful to be used with minimal damage to the environment and to the human race.

We are more barbaric then the vigilantes

  • Jul 9, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 4:34PM

Absolutely unfair is the sentence that non-violent "3-Strikers" are serving in prison after harming no one. There is no equal justice under this law.

Prison population has quadrupled in 20 years

  • Jul 9, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Aug 28, 2008 at 4:34PM
