A Miracle or a Meltdown... One or the Other...

Tonight in Dana Point, California, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission will be holding its annual hearing on the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station's recent performance, which has been lousy.  They'll give San Onofre an overall "B" where it should be getting a failing grade.  San Onofre should never have opened, and should be closed for good immediately.  For safety.  For economics.  Forever.
