Post subject:  A 'new' nuclear power plant in Tennessee

The New York Times has an article about Watts Bar 2, a TVA nuclear power plant whose construction was started in the 1970s and which will start operating in 2015: ... aking.html

An interesting reference is made to S. David Freeman, an anti-nuclear Carter-era appointee, who tried to stop the "nuke-aholics" within the TVA. It is also interesting to note that Watts Bar 2 will still use mechanical switches, although we are already in the 21st century.
