    about it? That "Chairman"? He had no business being chair of the NRC anymore than a vegan should be chair of FDA inspections of meat packing houses. Now he can go and work full time for NIRS without looking back.

    •  Heh. (0+ / 0-)

      I actually know a vegan who has tenure as professor of slaughter (or some such ridiculous title) at a state college in Oklahoma. You know, all the nifty details of getting an unfortunate animal from knocker to meat counter at your local grocery store. She could no doubt handle the FDA job just fine, probably trained more than a handful of future FDA inspectors in her time.

      I realize y'all don't like Jaczko, but that in no way alters any facts of his tenure or his qualifications for the job. Nukes aren't very popular these days, you'll have this whenever people are graphically reminded that this technology is and always was more about WMDs than "clean, safe, too cheap to meter." Even the recently ex-CEO of Exelon admits they aren't worth the cost or the bother anymore. GE's out of the business now, so is Siemens. There's no way to cure what ails nuclear power, Jaczko's absolutely right about that whether you like it or not. The smart money's going elsewhere.
