I just joined the "Close the Indian Point Atomic Power Plant" group on Facebook..an old commie pal runs it. Him, and a bunch of swell folks want to close that glowing joint down...fat chance, but still.
I remember when they built the damned thing.
It sits directly on top of a fault line, and is conveniently right next to the Hudson River so it can poison the hell out of it, and the NYC area when it finally gets around to melting down
Anyway when the place was just put up they had flaks come to tri-state grade schools, Public, and Katlick, with that crap about "electricity too cheap to meter". He even brought a bleep load of scale models kits for the boys to build.
Sister what's her name held them aside for them that did well on science exams. Lucky for me that was, besides recess, the only subject I was any good at. I got one! Hey I read "Popular Science", and watched that weird cartoon "Space Angel".
It was maybe ten years before folks began to think this crap wasn't such a "Hot" idea...so to speak.
Even if we tear the damned thing down the ground will be "hot" enough to microwave Thanksgiving turkeys in two seconds for the next ten zillion years...okay okay I over-state it a tad.
Maybe only Nine Zillion Years!
