Australia’s defunct nuclear test site becomes a tourist attraction
Maralinga, in Australia’s remote southwestern desert, is an abandoned military
base where, in the 50s and 60s, the Australian and British governments
dropped seven atomic bombs — the frst of which was as powerful as the one
dropped on Hiroshima. There was no concern over what happened at
Maralinga until the 1970s, when those injured by the tests came forward, and some
journalists and politicians began to question the secrecy surrounding the tests.
There has been a multimillion-dollar cleanup, and the tour guide tells you that
there is still radiation but it poses little danger to visitors unless, he says wryly,
they choose to eat mouthfuls of dust.

US midterm elections
Midterm elections are held near the
midpoint of the president’s four-year
term of ofce. This year – with two
tumultuous Trump years over and two
more to go – they have been eagerly
and/or uneasily awaited by both sides.
So, how does the party go out and make “the case that: ‘Gee, we gave you a tax cut,’
and the voters say: ‘Well, where is it,
because I don’t have a job now?’ Or, worse
yet, ‘I just got a 35% increase in healthcare
costs but I only had a 10% increase from
the tax cut. ”
