Yesterday Francesca and I were out on the bay with with friends.

It seemed like a perfect day until we found ourselves downwind from the Turkey Point Nuclear Generation Facility.

Something in the air apparently turned my wife into a sign- waving fish.

Everyone started shouting, "No more Nukes!".

I found out later that the facility is trying to expand.

The Sierra Club people told us this when we joined their protest nearby.

A moment later the head of Florida Power & Light stopped by to see what the fuss was about. When the club president explained the many dangers associated with facilities like Turkey Point he told us he would not only,

1) Cancel plans for the facility's expansion but

2) De-nuke the whole place and turn it into a nature preserve.

It was at this point that I woke up. Now it is Sunday morning, time to sell cocofish at the art show.

  2. Good on you guys for helping raise awareness on this issue. Turkey Point should have been closed down years ago, it's old and in the way, and really doesn't make that much juice for the grid. Hey, it could be become the glow in the dark visitors center for two national parks, wonder if they're good at sharing? Anyway, I'm sure the media was out in full force to cover this event, not.......
