A Truly Interesting Piece of Non-Fiction
An interesting story I read this weekend was about the latest news on Area 51. Rumors have always been lead on about Area 51 and whether it was true or not. Hollywood movies even portrayed it. But, recently the government finally acknowledged its "existence". This base held top-secret research information that the government never verified. Recently, it became public that Area 51 was a Cold War test site for technology. It was also used illegally to dump hazardous waste. Workers would be on site while the government set fire to hazardous waste. The smoke through the air lead to skin and respiratory problems that these workers filed law suits for. Throughout this law suit, the government denied Area 51 existed and did everything they could to keep it that way. The government ended up avoiding the charges, but the secret is now public.
