To the editor,
The angry, strained rhetoric between our president and the leader of North Korea brings back memories of the atom bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 at the end of World War II. Historian Paul Ham has written a book on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He states the Nagasaki bomb was subject to a force equal to 22,000 tons of TNT. More than 100,000 people were killed by the two bombs and thousands suffered severe burns.

Recount underway in Walworth County

ELKHORN -- About 20 volunteer ballot counters were hunkered down Thursday, Dec. 1, 2016, in the basement of the Walworth County Government Center in Elkhorn to begin the presidential election recount.

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein and independent candidate Roque "Rocky" De La Fuente filed recount requests last Friday and will pay the cost of the recount.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission earlier this week received about $3.5 million from Stein's group to cover the recount in Wisconsin's 72 counties.

The Walworth County recount was being overseen by County Clerk Kim Bushey, as several Stein observers watched the volunteers went through the ballots.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission voted unanimously Monday on a timeline for a recount of the state's presidential election and rejected a request that all of the nearly 3 million ballots cast be reviewed by hand, according to the Associated Press.

Stein's Wisconsin recount request included an affidavit from University of Michigan computer scientist J. Alex Halderman stating that a hand recount is the only way to determine whether there could have been a cyberattack that affected the results. He argued that records stored in electronic voting equipment could have been manipulated in an attack.

The decentralized nature of Wisconsin's voting system, and the fact that the equipment in question is not connected to the internet, makes it difficult to see how there could have been a widespread attack, said Wisconsin Election Commission administrator Mike Haas.
