littlefox: She might not at the moment be radioactive; but, after subsisting on public tap water for a while after the frack plant is up and running, she might get that beguiling glow-in-the-dark look. Hey, it'll make your kids easier to find if they stay out after curfew! Look on the "bright" side.

Atkinson wouldn't know what was good for him if you popped him in the head with a stop sign....You elect these clowns to council and the only one of the six who is vocal and sticks up for her residents is Gloria. This is tough for me to say because I have had my differences with her, but my councilman promised neighborhood watches (oh wait, that is all) and he hasn't even delivered on that. This is the crap you get when running for council and mayor becomes a popularity contest based on how well your last name is known, who your daddy was, and if your grandpap played a good banjo. Christ, whats next???? voting for people on the number of extra-marital affairs or children born out of wedlock that they have?????

The main goal STILL remains to get as many of these trucks OFF the roads as possible

The chicken littles need to understand that if the progressive liberals they elected would have used a little common sense, this wouldn't even be a conversation right now!

Ripping up those train tracks really left ZERO opportunity to transport frack water safely and cheaply!

And as I stated before, the tank cars could have SAFELY off loaded right at this location!!

You voted for these liberal progressives so

WWUthinking: Well summed up and encapsulated. One thing, though, neither this rag nor even the Water Warriors ever publicly detailed and catalogued the rather extensive body of evidence, from some fairly impeccable third parties, concerning the radium content of shale wastes and the real extent of the radiation problem. Frack waste trucks have set off radiation alarms at landfills in PA, OH, and other places, according to some reports, more than 1,000 times in recent years. That sounds like a lot to us, but it's definitely happening. Are radiation detectors going to be put in around the plant, or along the routes the trucks will follow? That would seem a minimally prudent precaution to take, in light of the evidence - which the readers here haven't yet have had detailed for them. We've seen some of it, and it is compelling.
