    "Plutonium, in truth, is dangerous for more than twenty times as long as there have been human beings on this planet." Ouch. "The government of Ukraine has commenced to lead tours through the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone." OUCH.

    "So it is perhaps possible that my daughter’s exposure to Chernobyl actually helped to make her so smart and so pretty". And I've just opened a link beyond that link. So I could get to know you better by reading red (my favorite of the trilogy, from one of my two favorite directors, w. David Lean). Still working on a larger and tighter grasp of Daily Kos, for the nonce. Need to write more diaries myself.

    I cannot read that second link now, re. your daughter vs. Enloe, but must hotlist it for later. I am so sorry for their greed and your and her suffering. You say "It is likewise true that this suffering is my fault, because her accident occurred in my house, on my watch. Sometimes people try to tell me that this is not so, but they are wrong, and they know it." I know a similar feeling, from a different tragedy, to my brother. I would tell you in person, but can't write it here. You're quite brave, blueness.

    "nature herself has shown us that the safe distance between a nuclear reactor and ourselves is 90 million miles". I'll use that quote. Your account of Three Mile Island reminds me of a prize-winning NYT piece on all the events that occurred on the rig meltdown in the Gulf last year.

    "It was Chernobyl that truly radicalized Mikhail Gorbachev." Fascinating. "“For thirty years, you told us that everything was perfectly safe,” he said. “You assumed we would all look up to you as gods. That’s why all this happened, why it ended in disaster."

    I can see that I have to read Wolves Eat Dogs. Should I read Gorky Park first, do you know?

    Amazing diary, blueness. Sorry I went away, glad I came back. Nevertheless, the rest must wait until tomorrow.
