I was thinking during our interview with Karen Charman how much we resist stories like this about the catastrophic danger of a nuclear plant like Indian Point. I full meltdown would destroy the southern part of New York State. We might never be able to return to our homes, that is if we were able to get out in time.

"Few of us," Arthur Miller once wrote, "can easily surrender our belief that society must somehow make sense. The thought that the State has lost its mind and is punishing so many innocent people is intolerable. And so the evidence has to be internally denied."

We are all too busy trusting the state and the corporations that run it. Indian Point is that time bomb in our midst that is just too troubling to consider.
