(3 comments) Japan's nuclear disaster is all eerily familiar to the Ex Farmer's Wife who emigrated to Ireland after the nuclear fall out of Chernobyl in 1986. Will the world forget quickly like they forgot Mayak 1960? Will anything change after import bans are lifted again?

( Out of Ireland) Green Germany vs. Green Isle- A Culture Clash:
(2 comments) In her series Out of Ireland, The Ex Farmer's Wife describes the environmental differences she encountered when emigrating to the Green Isles.

Or merely instant gratification. Ah, the allure of the Internet!

History is Written by the Victors--not by the ones in Power
(7 comments) The conservative, anti- evolution and anti- science Texas board of education have surpassed themselves by making textbook decisions for the whole nation.A case of Humpty- Dumptying where one person gets to decide that a word means what she decrees and just that.
