Latest word from Chris McKay is that Mikey should have been released yesterday, and the walkers were trying to make arrangements with Occupy Chicago to have him stay until his hearing. By now they should be on the road to go back to Albuquerque to resume where they left off. The O-Walkers have a Facebook page which is regularly updated, so keep checking back there or Twitter (@occupywalkusa) for any news.

  • On April 18th, Southern California Edison (SEC) admitted that Unit 2 had the same unusual wear as Unit 3 (the one the blew a tube) meaning it will be very difficult to turn on Unit 3 before understanding the problem, as had been suggested as one option by NRC Secretary Gregory Jaczko at the press conference.
