Safe as Springfield

Lithuania's Ignalina plant with its Fissionator 1952 Slow-Fission Reactor will halt operations on December 31 with no disruption in Baltic energy supply. According to Latvenergo's spokesman Andris Siksnis, Ignalina's plant superintendent Homer Simpson will oversee safe shutdown operations and then be transferred to Estonia where he will supervise oil shale production.
Ignalina representatives have downplayed the possible risks of cooling the reactor noting that "Simpson has more experience than anyone in the country." Recently, a public relations campaign with the slogan Safe as Springfield was launched in Lithuania to reassure the nation's citizens.
