    They probably got a great deal on the land!! I agree with your title, especially after the disaster in Japan.

    I would hate to see the nuclear plant as part of the view for that person who lives there..not to mention the danger if the nuclear plant ever blew up.

    We have two nuclear plants within 30 miles in my area. Without disaster they are no problem. The ones here are not visible by the nearest neighbors. Only the steam clouds.

    amazing, wow, NIMBY is right, just ruins not only the view, but they cant say that the lake is 100% safe or great to eat from. Sad
