A Rather Grim Take on the Hanford Cleanup

KTLA -- by Ralph Vartabedian

An article on the Hanford Site cleanup, dwelling on a lot that has gone wrong. It probably isn't the only thing you should read if you are new to the story, but it is worth linking if only for this quote:

"'You want to take somebody out and hang them,' said Rep. David L. Hobson (R-Ohio), the chairman of the House Appropriations subcommittee that pays for the project. 'It is already outrageous what it is costing.'"

And for a little good news, see Annette Cary's article in the Tri-City Herald: "300 Area cleanup ahead of schedule"
