This thing about patience is pretty difficult for me. I mean, I’m basically one of those “I want it fixed, and I want it fixed now!” types. You can check my references. They’ll agree.

But I guess it’s true that time does wound all heels as President Barack Obama has all but eviscerated the plan to store nuclear waste at Nevada’s Yucca Mountain site, a volcanic ridge line about 90 miles northwest of Las Vegas.

This political tug o’ war has been going on for a good 20 years, with Neanderthal thinking that posits how it is OK to take nuclear waste from 120 sites in 39 states, stow it on a truck or train car and ship it along major thoroughfares to the Nevada site.
