    RIP. I used to read Dear Abby faithfully, and the sensible advice was one of the pillars that held up the world and brought order out of chaos.

    The younger version of my mom looks totally like the young Pauline Phillips.

    Also, John Prine is probably the best songwriter I can think of.

      That’s terrific. He certainly makes sure to master his topics. And while that ending is great, it’s probably the least true bit of the piece. It’s hard to imagine a scenario in which a guard shoots someone who decides to jump into the pool. They’d need a visible suicide bomber’s belt rig, or the equivalent, as they charged for the water. Those would be difficult to get past the multiple layers of security

      People have fallen into reactor and fuel pools before. As you’d probably guess, the biggest hazard is death by paperwork.
