First off, a HUGE congratulations to my beloved Matt McGee, who amassed 500 Twitter followers and won a bet he and Jeff Quipp had made. $800 is going to the African Well Fund thanks to Jeff, Will, Li and Matt. Yay!
The Tri-Cities was built on nuclear power. Some people freak out when they hear that, and many people expect long-time residents to have a glow about them (I know I did when I moved here!). But a recent poll shows more people expect good things from nuclear power.
I really dislike my state’s governor, and I have since she dubiously won the election in ’04. But because I’m on this part of the state, which tends to be left to its own devices, and because we’ve got a rematch coming up in the fall, I usually ignore her plans and decisions. But the most recent role she may have played in the loss of a HUGE employment opportunity for the Tri-Cities really frosts me. It’s times like this I want the Tri-Cities to become one big city so we can have some more pull.
And you know what? That’s it for now. Have a great week!
