the fact that i found this on FOX news' site made the findings all the more dependable -- in a foregone conclusions sort of way.
Dominion Analyzing Quake Readiness Of North Anna Nuclear Plant | FoxBusiness.com:
WASHINGTON -(Dow Jones)- U.S. nuclear officials and Dominion Resources Inc. (D) are working to determine whether Dominion's North Anna nuclear-power plant in central Virginia was built to withstand the ground motion it sustained Tuesday after a magnitude-5.8 earthquake struck nearby Mineral, Va.
The analysis will shed light on the ability of the plant to cope with future tremors and help Dominion determine whether upgrades need to be made to the plant."
situation normal, folks. nothing to see here, just move along. if there's anything you need to know, we'll be the first ones to let you know!
isn't it great to know corporations are on our side, and are doing everything in their power to make sure we're "happy and having fun all the time!"?
and if, in the extremely off chance -- just ever so slightly beyond the planned design tolerances of the plant -- that there's a major failure or malfunction, dominon power would only withhold information to spare its customers from anxiety -- just like an Rx for happy pills! you don't notice anyone in japan all worked up over fuckushima, do you?
