News from "Our Friend the Atom," by Harry Shearer on Le Show

The actor and comedian behind the voice of Mr. Burns on The Simpson's reports regularly on nuke news on his Le Show. This week, he reports on ocean contamination levels from the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe; the scandal of a secret report by Bechtel Nuclear, compiled two years ago, that warned of widespread mismanagement at the Summer Units 2 & 3 new reactor construction sites in South Carolina, now cancelled at a cost of $2 billion to ratepayers; and German authorities in Aachen have distributed potassium iodine tablets to residents who live near an age-degraded Belgian reactor (to protect people's thyroid glands in the event of a release of hazardous Iodine-131 radioactivity in the event of a meltdown).
