Thread Name: Songs of Anxiety about technology
Subject: RE: Songs of Anxiety about technology
I WISH somebody would write an Ellentown type song about Richland here in WA. State, where Hanford is (Hanford, as in where they made the plutonium rods during the war). At the time, people were upset, but now everyone there is connected in some way, even the environmental think tanks. (It's the one plant that even the pro-nukers admit is screwed up.) The current plan is to fuse several cubic acres of soil (yes, acres) to lock in all the contaminants the government has been saying for 55+ years weren't there. I'm upstream but downwind from it, and Washington State has the highest cancer rates in America.

Off my soapbox.
