Hope your weekend was wonderful. Hmmmmmm. I've run into people in
South New Jersey,
Binghamton, NY and Corning, New York who like to eat small game. At a
party in Binghamton, I was once
threatened (i.e. asked to eat) some squirrel stew/soup. I wanted to
decline the offer, but did taste it.
Not too bad. But not like French Onion soup with Cheese either.
As I said earlier, some anti-nuke folks support the cause by selling
drugs and/or appearing in or making
"finer films". That being said, the folks from Brighton
Beach/Brooklyn/New York City (former USSR
folks) are moving into the "finer film" industry. This is especially true
of internet websites.
One minute such a website is run by traditional USA crime types (with USA
and the next day they have been taken over by crime types from the former
associated European crime types (and USSR etc. male/female models). This
does not bode well
for American kids/Anti-Nuke types who want to fund their efforts by making
"finer films". Maybe that
window for Anti-Nuke funding is closing.
There is warfare going on between the various crime elements.
Central American people have
taken over former neighborhoods which had been fully occupied from people
from the European
country shaped like a boot. These people from the European boot country
have moved into
my suburban neighborhood (next to urban Trenton, New Jersey USA), as well
as some Central
American and Haitian people, and the number of drug dealers appears to have
doubled. It's almost
like the invasion scenario described in the USA movie Red Dawn.
Anti-Nukes and/or drug dealers (sometimes they are one in the same)
are sometimes mini-
Anarchists. They like to subvert the truth (something like false-witness)
by joining two unrelated
words together. Take John and take Smith and join them together and
suddenly you have John
Smith --- the meaning of the individual words has changed.
JJCohen, I might have applauded at your HP Society Talk way back when
with low Energy Beta like I-129. But your idea is different then the
law/technical basis the EPA and/or
other regulatory agencies applies and enforces. For LLRW, I- 129 is
plentiful in the waste stream,
is mobile in the groundwater environment and is mixed in with the other
radionuclides in LLRW
(presumably LLRW from Nuclear plants). The Texas LLRW facility is a waste
disposal facility, not
an LLRW treatment facility (more expensive). The Texas LLRW facility aims
to be a good neighbor
and not have ANY offsite radionuclide transport (until the end of its
lifetime when it may be decommissioned). In return, the hosting community
will receive income and tax benefits for hosting the
LLRW facility. Once open the facility will accept LLRW (it is allowed to
accept by Class) and LLRW
from medical facilities, pharmaceutical firms, nuclear plants (mind you,
not spent fuel) etc. will be shipped
to the disposal site. One nuclear plant in New Jersey I once toured has
all kinds of LLRW stored up that
it would like to send to Texas, or perhaps has already sent to the facility
in South Carolina.
Much of the Medical/Pharmaceutical waste will decay 10 half-lives
(or whatever) and will either be
recycled or be released into the general waste disposal areas. Some of
the items from the Nuclear plants. will hang around the LLRW facility until
the end of the facilities' lifetime when decommissioning may
happen. Longer-lived waste from the facility might make its way into
Yucca Mountain, or a facility like
that, if it is ever opened. The Texas LLRW facility probably has its own
website, where you can read
more about the facility.
I'm off the clock, and the payroll, from any New Jersey LLRW facility
(which was never sited), and
have been since 1991, so this is all I have to say. My neighbors and/or
friends I have left still think
I personally am going to put an LLRW disposal facility in their backyard.
It's NOT HAPPENING!!!!
I'm tired of getting beaten up for having worked on the project.
Funny, I still recall the stories about what happened at North
Carolina at their LLRW disposal
facility Siting Board open forums with the public. Men in black hoods
showed up to the meetings,
I think complete with pistols, rifles, and shotguns and pretty much
declared siting of an LLRW
facility was not going to happen in North Carolina. Yes Sir!!!!
So, I guess North Carolina and most of the rest of the USA will be
shipping their LLRW to Texas or
wherever. Get those trucks rolling --- sounds like jobs for the trucking
industry. Maybe Busby and
his crowd can handcuff himself to a Tractor-Trailer packed with LLRW, and
it will be God's Will???
if the Tractor-Trailer goes from zero to 60 miles per hour in 30 seconds or
For some Canadian Health Physicist, there's a spiffy/neat/super Health
Physics job at the new???
Canadian Synchrotron Light Source in Saskatchewan. It's listed on the HP
