Every April 20th University of Colorado at Boulder does a huge rally for the de-criminalization of pot. For some reason this year the authorities at the Uni decided they wanted to block it. They put police tape all over with about nine times the police presence as usual, won't allow anyone on campus without a school ID, and intentionally-to-discourage-the-rally sprayed stinky fish-based fertilizer all over all the lawns where the gathering usually occurs.

While I suppose I should have far more serious thoughts about so many factors surrounding this, every time I hear a report of the goings on my head is full of Country Joe shouting, "What's that smell?"

However, were I paying for school there, I would be really pissed that they want to raise tuition while paying a couple hundred thousand bucks for police presence and such to block this. Its always been a peaceful demonstration - with visible clouds of smoke rising from the crowds. Today's action is completely unnecessary and the money c/should be better used for actual educational purposes.

Nuclear Plant Has Been Leaking For Four Years

According to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Entergy Corp has allowed highly radioactive waste to leak into a contained area at the FitzPatrick nuclear power plant for the last four years.

The FitzPatrick plant is near Oswego, New York, but the NRC has said that the leak "poses no immediate risks to any residents or the environment."
