    (which are probably only a small sample of your actual comments) always seem to point out that whatever is right (in this instance, democratically elected representatives preserving the safety of their constituents from an evil corporation) is in some way illegal.

    It creates a very disturbing cognitive dissonance for me, because I'm often thinking in other case that the rule of law is paramount, but then you remind me how annoying the rule of law can be when the people who've made the laws were wrong/assholes, which usually leads to me contemplating how our forefathers rebelled against the law of the land, and wondering what is a reasonable threshold for rebellion.

    I think it's clear that this plant should be shut down, ASAP. If the law prevents the state from doing that, and the Feds won't do it, then something has to give. in this case, it should probably be the law that gives the NRC final say over these matters. It should be like CAFE standards, where the federal regulations are the minimum but states can be more restrictive if they please.
