I live close to Davis Bessie also, it is shut down right now, so I don't really have any worries about that.
What I was wondering, how exactially would a terrorist attack a Nuclear Power Plant anyways? Short of putting a bomb RIGHT NEXT to the reactor, I
don't see how they could REALSTICIALLY be damaged. If you had a bomb big enough to level an entire nuclear power plant, even if it took out the
core, wouldn't the bomb still kill more people in a skyscraper, or densly populated area? Those reactor walls are not thin by any means (like 2 or 3
feet thick lead and like 6-12 feet of cement), and they are meant to take alot of forces I would imagine. No matter how crappy the security is in
these plants, I still think the terrorists would have a hard time getting a 10,000 lb. bomb into a nuclear power plant.
