The subject project has impacted the Tri-Cities in many ways -- mainly by creating "generational dependency." Generations have become accustomed to expecting endless job opportunities for grandfathers, sons, brothers, uncles and grandsons. I see them each morning speeding to work on GW Way, in a hurry to get to work so they can drink coffee, read the morning rag, and wile away the hours swapping old stories. Who in their right mind speeds to work? Hanfordites that's who. They are all in need of a good psychological examination.
What will they do when the Hanford site is eventually cleansed of the waste generated during the Manhattan Project?
