I have become tired of hearing about this issue. Maybe it's because I won't be living in Vermont much longer. My heart goes out to the people and their families who will be losing their jobs, but other than that I would like to forget about this.

Because home depot didn't crap their property up with radiactivity like VY...green space is a euphemism for bringing a site back to its original radiation levels before the plant was built...

Well if our glorious federal gub'mint wasn't beholden (in various sundry ways) to BigOil.
