Entergy wants us to believe they are stupid enough to make the same type error all the time, but didn't mean it -- thus we should forgive them and allow then to run a worn-out plant until it melts down and destroys Vermont and the neighboring states.

No we didn't mislead intentionally. We're just a bunch of incompetent boobs.

Give me a break. Of course they misled us intentionally. They knew the answers to the questions that they were asked. They told the NRC they had pipes knowing full well that the NRC wouldn't say or do anything, because the NRC was 27+ plants leaking all over the country. It'd be a little odd for the NRC to finally wake up and start making a big deal out of a big deal.

They knew that as soon as the public caught wind of the underground pipes and the nasty potential problem that would create then all bets would be off for continued operations. So take a chance and lie about it. It's what they do in other states.
