    gee, as far as i knew anyway there was no advanced statement that this was going to take place!!!!!!! maybe we can all forget about "refueling" until this old monster has its current dangerous guts safely taken care of and it is just not allowed to have anymore of its "accidents" too damn close to one of the finest fresh water lakes in the world!!!!!! ANY amount of man made radiation is NOT without any chance of causing additional cancers and just because most of John Who Public not paying much attention to the little spits and spats this over 40 year old possible poisoner of millions has already had because they are too busy in the rat race and getting stoned and twerking some of us know the truth of apparently so far at least for a while this face saving shut down explanation. RIP AND DO NOT FRY YOUR NADS CLEANING UP THIS MESS!!!!!!
