My spouse and I are still waiting for Berkeley CA to either take down
their smug little PC signage reading "you are now entering a
nuclear-free-zone" or to cast off their hypocrisy and actually stand by
their alleged principles by:
        a) getting rid of any and all NMR/MRI diagnostic equipment in their
        b) working out a town-level agreement with PG&E and the power brokers
to make sure that no nuclear-derived energy is used within their
borders, even if it costs more
        and most critically,
        c) building a light-impervious shell over their township borders to
prevent any nuclear-solar energy from entering

Until then, we'll feel free to sneer derisively at the signs. Would
that we had a radium watch to wear within town boundaries. :-)

PS- no, I'm not a nuke plant fan, I just can't stand Berkeley. :-)
