It is a shame that we have put more time and money in the development of cellular technologies so people can carry their lives in the palm of their hand, rather than developing nuclear power production.

The recent events surrounding the V. C. Summer project are not surprising. One just has to do some research to find that a similar situation took place near Hartsville, Tenn., in the late 1970s. The Tennessee Valley Authority undertook the construction of the same kind of project, but got to the same level of construction before work was halted.

It is a shame that a solution cannot be found to complete the reactors and update the construction technology. But if that happened, electric rates would plummet and whoever opened the plants would essentially put themselves out of business.
