Blood of my Blood

Strange drive to work yesterday (Monday) morning. I'd just taken the prior week off for vacation (caught a cold half way through). Even though it was only a quarter after seven, the traffic was pretty bad. The area is still reeling from horrible tanker explosion on I-465:

No one was killed. Death took the day off.

Driving in to work (very slowly - rerouted traffic) I got to hear part of Orson Wells' Mercury Theater production of Dracula on the radio.

Marble Hill

During a conversation at work the other day, the subject of Marble Hill came up. Marble Hill - the lovely nuclear power plant project in Marble Hill, Indiana that started construction in the early 70's and went grossly over budget due to things like attempts to make the shoddy construction of the containment walls safe. Say that out loud.

I actually worked with a girl, years ago, who had been an admin at Marble Hill before it was closed down.

Has anyone thought about making this story into a movie? I can picture 70's era Bloomington IU campus students providing some of the protesters. A nuclear power plant out in the sticks.
