Palisades worker found drunk on the job. She has been fired.

Isn't it great when the employees running a dilapitated old nuke plant, which recently had large releases of radiation into Lake Michigan, are found drunk on the job, not fit for duty. Funny, this same thing happened at Kewaunee, which was shut down last year. I guess, working at a decrepit dying plant probably makes one want to drink. Its time for Palisades to go, shut down. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
