I am so ashamed of the Supreme Court's decision to deny compensation to the victims of the Nevada atomic tests that took place back between 1951 and 1962 (Part I, Jan. 12). The court just told them go off and die somewhere . . . don't bother us with your problems. I would expect such a ruling from the Soviet Union but not in the U.S. Then they wonder why more people every year just don't bother to cast their vote.
