Jason Lytle is a solo artist that originally was the singer for Grandaddy. His sister has a brain tumor, and this site is offering up a slew of rare and unreleased music in exchange for donations to help defray the immense cost of treatment. Great music, great cause, great idea.
Ran across this article wherein a Sierra Clubber calls the gulf oil spill (which started on Earth Day, natch) “America’s Chernobyl.” Comments then led me to this amazing site, documenting two motorcycle trips through the dead zone surrounding Chernobyl. I think every person in a position of influence should have to take that same tour before they propose nuclear as an answer to our energy woes. I don’t care how “safe” it is when the results , no matter how infinitesimal in likelihood, are this catastrophic.
