Vote Nuke or no Nuke in Kaminoseki

What seems uninteresting, a mayoral vote in a small fishing village in Japan is symbolically huge. Kaminoseki isn’t in the earthquake area, it’s further south, yet they’re in an interesting quandary. Imagine, after 3/11, the idea of nuclear anything has been divided. Some say nuclear power is the way to go, and many are now against it. This village is set to have a nuclear power plant, and the political side in favor has won 8 times in a row. The town is now just over 3,000 people, so do they really need to be another Simpsons-like Springfield? (WSJ – Kaminoseki)
