“Any concerns in your area about the Indian Point nuclear plant? I understand it’s on the banks of the Hudson River and it appears to be in a bad location right now.”

what would be the concerns? that the re-bar reinforced cement domed reactor would not take the winds? ain’t an issue; or that the Hudson River will rise forty or sixty feet due to 5-10 inches of rain - ain’t gonna happen

silly queastions derserve silly answers

From CBS news and other news sources this morning (10/30/12):
“WASHINGTON - Part of a nuclear power plant was shut down late Monday while another plant — the nation’s oldest — was put on alert after waters from superstorm Sandy rose 6 feet above sea level.

One of the units at Indian Point, a plant about 45 miles north of New York City, was shut down around 10:45 p.m. because of external electrical grid issues said Entergy Corp., which operates the plant. The company said there was no risk to employees or the public, and the plant was not at risk due to water levels from the Hudson River, which reached 9 feet 8 inches and was subsiding. Another unit at the plant was still operating at full power.”

Your uncalled-for snotty answer to a legitimate question says volumes about your character - or lack thereof. It’s the type of response that should be coming from a teenager who knows everything, not an adult who should know better.

By the way, a sentence is started with a capital letter and ended with a period or other punctuation. You’ve been texting too much. Oh, and spell check is your friend.
