"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

TVA Neglect Comes Home to Roost at Kingston Steam Plant.

Homes destroyed, gas leaks, train derailed, road closures, thankfully there were no deaths. A water and fly ash holding pond dam collapse resulted in this damage. Knoxnews.com Images: http://www.knoxnews.com/photos/galleries/2008/dec/22/images-tva-pond-breach/

The TVA has spent millions and intends on spending billions on expensive risky nuclear power while neglecting its dam fleet and other operations. At its Kingston Steam Plant this neglect had a devastating result. http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2008/dec/22/officials-dike-burst-floods-homes-near-tva-plant/
