The latest rumblings about spent fuel and what "we" are going to do with it has renewed life in this aging body of Artichoke Annie. For the longest time I thought my ranting was paramount to 'spitting into the wind'. Now with renewed vigor I see perhaps, just perhaps a dim light appearing at the end of a very long tunnel.
I have set a goal to go through my past blog posts this weekend and provide a thoughtful summary on some of my posting regarding spent fuel, just in case you missed them the first time around or would like a refresher.
Here are a couple of news items that appeared in today's news for your perusal.
