Do you believe in miracles? Not so fast… another SCC gasbag takes up the slack.
I had to re-read this quote to make sure I read it correctly…
Jack Dunavant, chairman of Southside Concerned Citizens, said whether the study turns out to be objective after it’s over remains to be seen.
“As long as they do it objectively, I say full steam ahead,” Dunavant said Thursday.
Yeah, I know that Wacky Jack has left a giant hole to weasel out, but I’m taking the fact that Jack Dunavant is in favor of an objective study and freezing. Perhaps the SCC has actually stopped making ridiculous statements?
Or perhaps not…
Eloise Nenon (of the Southside
Confused Concerned Citizens) drops this steamer into the story…
“I seriously doubt it,” said Eloise Nenon, founding member of Southside Concerned Citizens, when asked if she believes the study would be objective.
The proposed study, Nenon said, “ignores the people, the communities, the traditions and our history. This is a very historic state.”
Hello, Eloise? Are you listening? This is a study about whether the uranium can be mined safely. It should have nothing to do with the people, the communities, the traditions NOR the history. It’s going to say if technology and science have evolved enough to get the uranium out safely. That’s all. No more, no less.
Of course, this is the same Eloise Nenon who is an expert at “poisoning the well” in her own way.
“You can do research to prove almost anything, if you want to,” Nenon said.
