Dizzy

I’ve been rendered speechless by the idiocy in the conversation about Obama’s plan to build more nuclear power plants.

Is it the counter-argument about regulation? (Nuclear power plants are problematic because regulations are so restrictive…so let’s just ease those regulations, eh? Where have we heard that brilliant solution before?)

No, it’s this quote, from The Atlantic, which offers arguments against the arguments against the idea (already I am dizzy):

“Then there’s the worry of a terrorist threat. What if someone flies a plane into a nuclear reactor? Thousands could die. Well, what if someone flies a plane into a giant building? Thousands could die. Should we not build them either?”
