    Seriously, though, I don't think its' so much that the anti-nuke crowd distrusts nuclear power per se, its' the operators and whoever else standing to make beaucoup bucks from nuclear energy.  As we've seen over and over and over and over again, in just about every endeavor money trumps public safety far more often than not.  Where energy production via nuclear power is concerned, fudging safety, engineering or construction has the potential to be way more catastrophic than, say, gas tanks on the Ford Pinto, drywall from China or my prom date's approach to birth control (don't ask).
