When common wisdom dies uncommonly fast

As I wrote a few days ago, for years the Nuclear Power Industry and it’s paid servants in Congress have been singing the virtues of countries like Japan and Asia in general and their nuclear power use.

About two years ago those refrains got Fukishimaed royally…but not nearly so much as the people who lived in Northeast Japan.

But it is becoming apparent that tsunamis alone haven’t been upending this myth.

A nuclear power plant in Taiwan may have been leaking radioactive water for three years, the government has said, adding to a growing crisis of confidence
in North Asia about nuclear safety.

Japan is struggling to contain radioactive water pouring out of the Fukushima nuclear plant that was wrecked by a 2011 tsunami. In South Korea,
prosecutors are conducting a massive investigation into forged safety certificates and substandard parts at many of its reactors.

I’m sure our Nuclear Power Industry is anxious to start talking up France now.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
