I didn't make any value judgments; I just echoed the opinions of the professionals. I hope alternatives CAN replace coal and nukes, eventually, just doubt that will happen any time soon, with known technologies.

Obama is just a henchman for the Fed*, and what the Fed wants, the Fed gets. FCC in newsrooms? Hardly a surprise. Homeland Security is already whitewashing all national and international news -- I worked on the facility where they do it. Take it for what it's worth.

Fed* -- Federal Reserve, the private corporation

Wind, solar, and geothermal, combined, aren't but a drop in the bucket, compared to nuclear. Dad's career was in power generation, and according to him -- and Duke Energy, about the biggest player in the game -- the future is nuclear. Leave it to Science how to deal with the spent fuel; meanwhile, Utah and Nevada compete for the honor of disposing of it. Bury it deep.

I applaud Mankind's efforts to find a viable and sustainable alternative, and I wish us the best of luck there -- but in the meantime, Palo Verde supplies power for millions.

There's a whole Third World, only now awakening to the benefits of electricity, and begging for it.

Nukes are here to stay.

Because, as Dad said: Everybody wants pizza!!

Cranking code, my man. Had to convert Excel spreadsheets into SQL tables so we could play with them. Fantasy Football. This weekend's game results. No extra points were blocked. Why do they bother? (If anybody says so they can maybe go for two I'll scream) Now it'll take care of itself. I don't think I can plug the website here -- correct me if necessary. We've got it going on!!

Back to the topic at hand: Where is the miscreant dog's owner while all this is going on? Are citations being issued? Fines levied? Sounds like Mamba is a regular guest there. If he's a permanent resident, and nobody adopts him -- well, you know...

What a crock. Maybe Mamba is smart enough for this -- and maybe he had assistance -- wouldn't be the first assisted breakout from that facility. Where's the video when ya need it...

Regardless, somebody is blowing smoke up our you-know-what. Like a faulty door will cost $146K to fix. Hell, I'll bet the contractor is already shopping boats.

At least I learned from my mistakes. Among other things, I learned that sometimes the will of the majority outweighs my own selfish motives.

Pointing fingers and saying other people do it doesn't do it for me any more.

They allow those stinky and noisy machines in there? Something wrong with your feet? Can't walk with the real folks? How old are you?

Do I miunderstand law, or are you a criminal, Mark?

I've always advocated offering to trade Yosemite to the Chinese for their share of our debt -- but at this rate, they'll get the whole kit and kaboodle!! And we're feeding them the money to buy us out!! They'll take GOOD care of our forests. Shop at Walmart!!
