    Letter: Rehabilitation

    I often hear people talk about how important rehabilitation is for prisoners in order for them to be successful in society. I couldn’t agree more. Rehabilitation goes further than the prison walls, it continues on the outside and all through their lives.

    Letter: American voters

    Kid yourself not, there’s more than a few people who question the intelligence of the American voter. When their party loses an election, they blame the winner for winning. In doing so, they’re blaming the same system by which their party wins an election. Democracy is not something...

    Letter: Nuclear spent fuel

    The recent discussion of whether to bring to the INL small quantities of high-burnup spent fuel from a commercial nuclear power reactor to study the effect on fuel cladding integrity has been challenged by the critics.
