         Okay, fine, you got me on a technicality.  I doubt that many 
anti-nukers are thinking "Chernobyl!" when they make their charges of 
reactors-equal-thyroid-cancer.  They are claiming that properly 
functioning reactors are guilty of emissions that cause thyroid cancer.

         The exception certainly does not prove the "rule" --- or in 
this case it does not prove what amounts to an ideology.
