A Cartoon Chronicle of the Yucca Mountain Nuke Dump Controversy
By Jim Day
"This book is a compilation of Day's cartoons devoted to his wry observations, visual metaphors, pen-and-ink assaults on the eyeballs, and various bludgeonings of the issues and characters involved in the nuclear waste dump debate. By the time you finish studying it from cover to cover you might not know a roentgen from a rat hole or a spent rod from a spitoon, but you will have a visceral appreciation for the ire and irony that have colored Southern Nevada's neon-tinged dialog on the nuke dump." --Thomas Mitchell, editor, Las Vegas Review-Journal
