You might check out "UPGRADE," a smart and nicely drawn comic-book for adults, free on Amazon, about a crazy future world where corporations run society, privacy is gone, consumerism is rampant, and nobody seems to care. At only 40 pages, it’s a fast read, both creepy and funny and unfortunately, rings way too true.

It's set a sci-fi society where everyone eagerly awaits and installs "upgrades" that take away their personal freedoms under the guise of "convenience", making people more and more dependent upon a techno-corporate-government, and yet they eagerly embrace. Sound familiar?

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."
