Environment

The most toxic town in America

In 2017, the EPA listed Kotzebue, Alaska, the most industrially polluted community in the United States — a result of millions of pounds of poisonous dust laden with heavy metals released annually from zinc and lead mining at nearby Red Dog Mine.

Politics

After Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed, many believed Robert Kennedy was going to carry on the reforming fight. But when he too was assassinated many lost hope for a new America. Looking back 50 years on after his death on June 6, 1968, some argue that Kennedy’s death meant America lost a liberal idealism that has never been recaptured.
