Vermont Yankee plant radioactive leak found and fixed (By Dave Gram, Associated Press)
A new leak of radioactive material was found and fixed at the troubled Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant, officials said over the weekend. Vapor and water containing 13 radioactive substances were found late Friday coming from a pipe in a hole workers dug to find the source of an earlier leak.
The leak was the second mishap connected with the startup. On Wednesday, the reactor “scrammed’’ — went into automatic shutdown — when a problem developed with equipment in the switch yard where it connects to the power grid.
In January, plant officials announced that radioactive tritium, which can cause cancer when ingested in large amounts, had turned up in a monitoring well. In investigating, the company spent months digging wells, only to find more tritium and other radioactive substances.Meanwhile, plant officials acknowledged they had misled state regulators and lawmakers regarding whether the plant had underground pipes that carried radioactive substances.

I don't read those as a matter of principal.
Some are four-day items, others one-day wonders.
I'll let you guess which is which.
I'm sorry, readers, I am simply no longer interested in what the Boston Globe has to say.
I'm tired of the lies and insults, and sorting through half of May's unread copies yesterday proved it to me. I reached the point where I decided "who cares?" anymore. Now I am sorting through the select clippings I was going to bring to you and tossing many of those, too.
If I WANT the REAL NEWS and the TRUTH -- and not some divisive, distorted, obfuscating, Muslim-hating, agenda-pushing, war-promoting, Zionist shit slop -- I'll GO the the BLOGS listed to the RIGHT from NOW ONE, thank you!
