Re: “About those emails Republicans FOI'd in the Stacy Hurst-Clarke Tucker race

Seems legit - two very affluent, better off than most, running for Public Office and debating over one affluent parent's child access to better education. What's not to like here?

Seems to this observer that we the people have been screwed again. To be distracted by simpleton BS like this - especially by the affluent who are running for public office to create and shape public policy speaks volumes both on the candidates and the electorate.

Why can't we get past this 'Kardashian' type BS in public politics? Please find someone with a better set of scruples and can relate to the 'common people' to run for Office. This is just yet another example of why the system is flawed.

Re: “Judge refuses to dismiss suit challenging new 12-week abortion limit

Clay, you obviously didn't read the Courts binding opinion.

Somehow you (and others like you) have forgotten that we are governed in this Country based on Laws rooted in the Constitution.

Its a fetus, not a baby. You need to build a bridge and get over it for Christs sake.

Re: “Federal report backgrounds Nuclear One accident know not what you speak of. The terms that you have cherry-picked from the NRC report are of nonsensical nature.

Re: “Rainy days and Sundays

Significant Industrial Accident at Arkansas Nuclear One:
A significant industrial accident occurred at Arkansas Nuclear One at approximately 7:45 a.m. There has been one confirmed fatality and three additional injuries. The injured employees have been transported to a nearby hospital. The accident occurred when a generator stator fell as it was being moved out of the turbine building. Unit 1 is in a refueling outage and Unit 2, which was operating at full power, automatically shut down. Both plants are in a stable shutdown condition and there is no danger to the public. The plant is in an unusual event classification, the lowest of four emergency classifications designated by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Additional staff has been brought to the site to manage the situation.
Jeff Forbes, executive vice president and chief nuclear officer said, “We are deeply saddened by what has happened today. Our greatest sympathy is with the family and friends of the employee who lost his life, and with those who sustained injuries. I also want to express my sorrow and support to all those who work at Arkansas Nuclear One. I know this is especially hard on them.”
Area residents are requested not to call the plant. Local radio stations are the best source of up to date information and are being provided with the latest information by plant, federal, state and local officials.

Re: “Rainy days and Sundays

Concerning the Industrial accident at ANO.

Work was being conducted on the Turbine Generator system when a component being lifted experienced a failure in the load carrying path.

Due to the plants construction and physical characteristics, the location of the incident has absolutely no connection or potential to release any radiological materials.
