new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

the impact of nuclear accidents on the world

i was in high school when we received an assignment for a debate: nuclear power -- the arguments for and against.

this was the 1970s, mind you, in wilmington, delaware. my memory may be failing me, but i believe we were given the assignment in the wake of the accident at three mile island.

i was against it. i did whatever research i could at this internet-less time and presented my case. i wasn't sure about what i thought about it before the debate, but our work convinced me. nuclear power had too many foreseen and unforeseen consequences to use safely.

i'm very sorry to have had to say, too often, i told you so.
