WAR: A Foolproof Idea

What could possibly go wrong with Russia building floating nuclear plants that admittedly "could be sold to other nations."?

That has "next season on 24" written all over it, to say nothing of the "Perfect Storm Meets the China Syndrome" aspect. I mean, I'm all in favor of more nuclear power, but this strikes me as (1) the kind of thing that ought not to be mobile and (2) probably not the kind of project the Russians are likely to get right before anybody else has tried it.

Floating nuclear power station is just another name for a docked nuclear powered ship whose generators are wired into a power grid. The wiring-in is not a high process. However, the Russians, or other (hopefully responsible) ship owners, could easily maintain operation of the reactor.

A-Rod comes to the defense of the Attorney General! Good for him.

Yeah, when I heard something about that on NPR, my thoughts ran along the lines of, "oh, THAT sounds like a good idea..."

I mean... do you see politicians trying to tell hitters how to hit?
