Hi Jim,
Thanks for posting the link to the hearing feed. It was interesting to watch
a live feed of NRC Chairman Jaczko flanked by 2 NRC Commissioners on either
side at the witness table discussing the unanimously signed critical letter
the 4 Commissioners sent to Obama's Chief of Staff soundly criticizing the
NRC Chairman.  As always in a hearing these days, there was the partisanship
of Dems vs. Republicans in questioning the witnesses but it made for some
interesting viewing.

Jaczko was pretty good at dodging sharp comments from the committee members,
but some were not buying it and said so in the harshest terms.
