First, we here at Green Nuclear Butterfly hope that each and every one of you had a wondrous Thanksgiving at home with your families. My wife and I sat down to dinner at around seven last night with all the trimmings that a feast should include. Turkey, stuffing, olives, mashed potatoes, homemade gravy, deviled eggs, pies and a host of other goodies. It was a great day, a fabulous meal, and we have a lot to be thankful for.
Meanwhile, Entergy tried to RUIN THE HOLIDAY with an NRC filing done very late in the day on Wednesday, wherein they moved to have all contentions filed by FUSE USA tossed out of the License Renewal process. Talk about scrapping the bottom of the barrel dirty tricks! Don't get me wrong, trying to get everything dismissed in the door is a standard nuclear industry trick...forget the fact that a contention brings up a serious public health and safety issue, if they can get it dismissed on a technicality, they are HAPPY CAMPERS. But to serve legal filings on the day before Thanksgiving! Talk about SCROOGE!
This low life timing on the part of Entergy and their attorney (Morgan, Lewis & Bockus, LLP) is simply Baboon Ass Ugly, the lowest of the low. Just goes to show you, that life in the nuclear industry is like a baboon's ass, colorful and full of shit. So, in the spirit of generosity, we here at Green Nuclear Butterfly are launching the Nuclear Industry Baboon Ass Awards (NIBAA or BAA). If you would like to nominate a company, or individual involved in the nuclear industry for a BAA (Baboon Ass Award) send us your nominee, along with a brief explanation of why they are deserving of such an honor to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than December 26th,2007 (our one year anniversary). We will announce our BAA Top 10 List on New Year's Day.
