I have long had a theory that people who came before us should be given the benefit of the doubt when they gave names to things that were clearly designed to warn us away from those things. The canyon where California's God-forsaken nuclear power plant is located is called... Diablo Canyon. That should have been a hint, maybe. (Rachel Maddow)
