         Thank you for the link, Stewart.

         A lot of whining by Jaczko about how he wants to improve 
"safety."  I wonder how big of an increment these safety improvements 
would be.  Is Jaczko merely wrapping himself in the flag of safety?

         So much 'he said, she said;' and 'did not, did too' has 
arisen in this squabble that I doubt whether we will ever be able to 
find out where the truth is.

         Should we blame Bush too much for Jaczko's 
appointment?  Doesn't the Senate have to approve the NRC 
commissioners?  Of course those appointments generally get 
rubber-stamped. . . .
