I'm told that Chuck Johnson from the Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility has asked if a recent report on the Columbia Generating Station fills us Tri-Citians with confidence that the reactor won't blow up.
The answer to Mr. Johnson's query is not only yes, but a resounding "Hell, yes!" I have raised my family in this community for 40 years. My grandchildren live here. My dog lives here.
Vic Parrish, retired director of the Washington Public Power Supply System, is a friend of mine. I know people who work there. I have orders of magnitude more faith in the operations of that plant than I have in any pronouncement coming out of PSR.
Further, if this is the sort of science practiced by the physicians in this organization, I would prefer that any medical problems incurred by any member of my family be attended to by the closest shaman.
Never miss a local story.
