    The situation will have to get a lot worse for the radiation effects to be in the same league as the damage done by meth.

    look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.

    •  Every bit of excess radiation (9+ / 0-)

      will harm people, even far from the source if we're talking contamination blowing in the wind. And last I checked, meth involves an informed choice. Getting dumped on by nuclear greed-meisters does not. They don't care what you want or need or deserve, or what choices you might make.

      Are you trying to say that it's okay if you get leukemia from your friendly neighborhood belching reactor, because your next door neighbor might be a meth-head?

    •  And we've only the Nuclear Safety Fairy (5+ / 0-)

      to guarantee that this, or some other situation at any other plant, will not get much much worse than meth, or even medical-induced deaths, in a single day.

      If Republicans said every 3rd person named "Smith" should hang, we'd bargain them to every 7th. Then we'll see apologia written praising this most pragmatic compromise. There's our losing formula.
