Comment Nuclear Plants. What security? (Score 1) 161

Friends were boating in a southern state a month ago, not far from an active nuclear power plant. The weather turned nasty. Then the boat hit a rock. They had to beach the boat... on unfenced power plant property. Not a soul was around. No one came to greet them. They could have stayed longer and had a hot snack (microwaving not required).

Homeland Insecurity is doing a good job of keeping nail clippers off of airplanes, but the agency doesn't seem at all concerned about unauthorized access to nuclear power plants. I guess this is not too surprising, considering that Ridge is in charge. Well, maybe 'in charge' is the wrong term.
