Neil Young's Utopian Vision of Mother Earth
Mark Milke, Calgary Herald
Fort McMurray may not be scintillating, but it’s hardly a “wasteland.” I’ve been there, as well as to Hiroshima and Nagasaki and their atomic bomb museums. To compare a northern mining town to Hiroshima is cheap demagogy; it also displays a profound ignorance about the atomic bomb’s horrific effect upon the Japanese population in 1945. Such invidious comparisons should not be lightly made.
