Parables Illuminate Bomb Plant Issues

The President has proposed to spend $340 million dollars to accelerate construction of the new bomb plant in Oak Ridge, Tennessee in next year’s budget. These parables illuminate our thinking about the wisdom of massive investment in a Supersized, Superpriced bomb plant at a time when we are trying to discourage other nations’ nuclear ambitions and rein in spending across the board. Enjoy!

Sunday Vigil at Y-12 in Oak Ridge Tennessee

Sunday Vigil

The OREPA Board has now decided that we are prepared to do a limited re-opening of the Sunday vigil to allow for slightly more participation.  We are asking anyone who wants to attend a Sunday vigil to sign up in advance—by the Thursday before. There are two ways to sign up. You can email Ralph at or you can call him at 865 776 5050. If the five slots are already taken, we’ll ask you to wait until next week. All vigilers are expected to wear masks. Bring your own chair. Avoid physical contact and maintain an appropriate social distance in the circle of chairs. Of course, if for any reason you feel you may have been exposed to the virus or to someone with the virus, you should not attend the vigil. At this point, we are not resuming our monthly potlucks.
