Reminds me of a Dennis Miller Live episode when he was talking about the tobacco lawsuits. Millions of people wanting to get compensated for getting lung cancer after 10, 20, 30, and 40+ years of smoking cigarettes and cigars...to wit, Dennis Miller replied...
"Whadya expect? It's fucking smoke! You don't stick your head into a campfire every ten minutes and inhale do you?"
Well I think there is some comparison to the Nuclear Energy Industry. I think they knew all long that there was a risk for health problems but they figured it would be years if not decades before any evidence would show up and by that time they would have already collected billions of dollars in profits.
"I mean come on, it's fucking radiation! Whadya expect?"
