Upcoming anniversary

April 26 is the 20th anniversary of the Chernobyl accident. This post at the ever-entertaining and informative BoingBoing points you to Chernobyl.info, which looks like a great resource.

I remember this very vividly, coming on the heels of the Challenger accident in January. I always thought there was a certain poignancy in that both the USA and the then-Soviet Union were united by national grief at the height of Reagan’s personal cold war idiocy.
