The governor knows how to do politics.

Politics is all that Rendell knows.

I think they should call Rendell every time they have an alarm, let's see how long that lasts.
If I have a general area monitor that goes off and the alarm setpoint is 20 mrem/hr and the meter reads 30 and I am inside containment why the hell would I call the state unless there is a requirement to do so? Now even if there is not a requirement and the same alarm goes off but now it is reading 50 Rem/hr, yes call the state. It's called the graded approach and I am sure they are included in all the procedures including emergency response procedures. I am sure Excelon wanted to shove this up Rendell's (use your imagination) but chose to respond nicely to an ill informed Politician, an oxymoron.
