  1. Faith
  2. Panning Designated Survivor
  3. Yay, Nuclear!



Sounds like it’s worth watching long enough to see the bombs drop on Washington, D.C., but not much longer than that…

Dana G. Fisher, responding to Dorothy Rabinowitz’s review of the new TV series “Designated Survivor.”


Nuclear power is the best form of power there is. It’s clean. It’s safe. It’s long-lasting. It just works. Unlike solar, it works even at night. Unlike coal, it doesn’t destroy the Earth. Unlike oil, it doesn’t fund terrorists. It’s just perfect.

(Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry, one of several infrastructure ideas that go beyond pork)
