“Duck Dynasty,” a family based TV series, opened its fourth season recently and broke records while doing so. About 12 million viewers watched the season premier, making it “…the most watched non-fiction series telecast in cable TV history.” It should make you wonder ‘why’ and ‘how’ an extended family of self-admitted “Louisiana rednecks” that makes duck calls for a living could grab and hold the attention of millions of Americans each week.

I have followed the uranium debate for several years. I have listened to mining proponents’ views and read their press releases. I have noted the various positions taken by local governing bodies and newspaper editorial pages. I have read the reports offered by NAS and Chmura Economics and skimmed the Moran and Virginia Beach reports and the report prepared by the Governor’s Uranium Working Group.
