In response to the sick story "Voters Give Nuclear Plant a Chance to Prove Itself," (Part I, June 9) regarding the Rancho Seco nuclear power plant:
The continuous controversies over nuclear power plants must be brought to a climax before man shames himself beyond despair--something that destroys all hope. It is going to take only one small boo-boo at Rancho Seco, Diablo Canyon or San Onofre power plants to set off a disastrous chain reaction calamity that in no way can be quenched by any methods known to date.
This letter is from a man who has been fighting follies with nuclear power for many years--a man who has examined and witnessed the results of many total catastrophes on machinery, boilers and massive electrical motors and equipment. Safety must come first!
