Readers’ Recommendations of the Week:

Sir, I have read through the movie list of recommended viewing and find it very good. However I did not see a series that I consider to be very instructive not only for post-nuclear living but general life in any SHTF scenario. Please consider viewing “Jericho: the series.” Our EMA office actually uses this series in our CERT training, as does the local Ham club. – C.Y.
