Our Virginia Common Wealth Tour continues… We headed out of Verona and on to rural Buchanan, Virginia. We stopped at the Buchanan Quick Stop (that didn’t seem all that quick ). A slow country music song was playing in the background of the store and some older African Americans were milling about out front. I passed out some campaign cards to them and noticed a rather large store marquee over one of their shoulders. It was out by the road. It didn’t read 2 Liter Coke 99 cents, or 2 Gatorades for $3. It simply read: Go Hokies! They take their college football seriously here. And this is something else we should be taking seriously… Note: The Obama administration has called for millions of dollars in federally guaranteed loans to build a whole new generation of nuclear power plants here. According to Z Magazine, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has admitted that 27 of the nation’s nuclear power plants have had radioactive tritium leaks. These leaks, like the one at the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant, can get into the groundwater, then rivers, then lakes, then us… Nuclear power has the potential to be: just too darn dangerous! I mean, would you want your kid drinking water with tritium in it? I don’t even think it’s too great that they’re drinking Coke, even at 99 cents for 2 liters.
