Morning Coffee Robert Sheridan bobsheridan bobsheridan@earthlink.net When I was a kid at Curtis, they'd pass out Junior, maybe Senior Scholastic magazines once in awhile. They resembled comic books in the paper and some of the print. I remember one they had with a schematic drawing of a nuclear power plant, just like you described it, Dadoo, you put the whatsis in here and the steam comes out here. Perfect. Clean. Simple. No problemo.

Guess what?

It wasn't that clean and simple and problem free in real life. There was this movie, "China Syndrome," then Three Mile Island. Then Chernobyl.

If youda told me at the time I read that magazine at Curtis that I was being propagandized, I woulda called you a Communist, if I wanted to be polite.

Live and learn.
