I'm signing and circulating EVERY petition I receive that demands the U.S. cease any plans for more nuclear facilities (and, believe it or not, they have some in the works right now in the Gulf of Mexico -- like those people haven't suffered enough already)!

Actually the German plants were already scheduled for shutdown inspections before they are considered for extensions of their operating life. The Japanese tragedy will hopefully cause the Germans to make an even closer inspection of their plants.

Hope you and your family remain safe, dear friend, my thoughts are with you.
