         And the consternation (and whatever may come along with it) will 
serve Nevada right.

         Any state that has a nuclear power plant within its boundaries 
should store its own spent fuel, not shove it off onto another 
state.  Congress should cancel Carter's brainless 'no-reprocessing' order 
and re-processing should proceed apace based on contracts between reactor 
owners and operators and the re-processing company (or companies).  States 
with reactors should devise a method of refusing to sell power to 
non-nuclear states.  Let the no-nuke states burn coal or cat tails, or 
erect vast wind farms.  A dose of self-sufficiency would be good for everyone.
