Indian Point CEO Wayne Leonard seems to have some misguided notions about how to talk about the threat of nuclear disaster. So we would like to offer the following tips: Don’t start your PowerPoint presentation to investors by displaying a quote from The Hangover, “By the way, we’re all gonna die!” Don’t stuff the first five pages with more Hangover references and then scatter them throughout the next 111 pages. Don’t spitball a list of other ways people can die, including bee stings and legal execution. Maybe get someone to fact-check statements like, “No one has died as a result of a nuclear accident.” And when it’s over, don’t have your spokesperson offer this quote as an explanation, “Wayne’s a movie buff.” [NYP]
I’m going to spend the next year as a private citizen, but I do indeed intend to run for office again. I’m not sure for what, and I am not exactly certain when. I need to take a nap. But once I do, I’m planning to get back into the ring.
