Two Nebraska Nuclear Plants Partially Submerged by Missouri Floodwaters

While we have been distracted by Anthony Wiener's undercarriage this is something that should be receiving media coverage: Two Nebraska Nuclear Plants Partially Submerged by Missouri Floodwaters | DBKP - Death By 1000 Papercuts - DBKP . More interesting information here. I imagine there are well placed proponents of the nuclear industry who would prefer that we don't know much about this. There is currently a no fly zone above the facility but searching "Fort Calhoun" on MSNBC, ABC, and Fox News do not mention it. Wonder what's going on?

The picture is taken from the shore of Wakeby Pond in Mashpee, no connection to the story - and I am so glad!

Yes, Ellen, the gov't does lie to us and does hide things from us and the media backs them.

That said, I find this disturbing, too.

that's bizarre! wow, i'm shocked that there has been no media coverage of this.

We find out about things like this, and the drowning fish in the
Gulf from biotics used there by BP, only by reading Greg Palast, who almost NEVER gets coverage in the US.

Sad that our national fixation on celebrity worship has become the major focus of news agencies.

BTW, Happy Moving in Day :-)
