While visiting Cleveland this week Senator George Voinovich was touting nuclear energy as a potential solution to some of the region's economic woes. It's not just the cheap endless energy supply that has the Senator stirred up. He is selling the nuclear economy, the potential for more manufacturing jobs. European countries, particularly France, have long embraced nuclear power. Of course, that hasn't been without its problems.

Join us Wednesday morning at nine for a conversation about our friend the atom.
