Mutants In The News — Inaugural Edition

Two recent articles are chock full o' doomsday goodness.  It should come as no surprise that they both pertain to New York City, home of all things Armageddon-ish:  Snake Plissken, ape-planets, and CHUDs.

The New York Times' brings us A Legal Manual for an Apocalyptic New York.  It details the new how-to handbook—the New York State Public Health Legal Manual:  A Guide for Judges, Attorneys, and Public Health Officials—for The Law to function in a disaster.  The deceptively dull title and dry text conceals a parorama of paranoiac nightmare fodder.  (The PDF is available here.)

)  Next up is a Discovery News article, Mutation Lets Fish Thrive In Toxins.  Remember, can't spell Superfund without the word Super!
