Alice's Adventures in a Nuclear Power Plant

There was an unfortunate posting of this story that resulted in a loop of 5 repeats of the content. I believe it has something to do with the upgrading of my browser to Explorer 9. I lost several familiar functions that had to do with the copy and paste routine. So I reposted and hope it will at least come up a single time on the site. Then I noticed that the initial grading of this story by 4 readers resulted in an average of 1+ far below my average of about 5.85. It was such an outlier that I figured my atttempts at humor rubbed 1 or more people the wrong way. I don't know if it was the bisexual aspect, the Nuclear industry puns, or the overall jabs at Women's Issues or Environmental agendas. Perhaps I made the heroine a bit too giddy and lacking in substantive intelligence. I suspect my low-graders were all female and that is all right because everyone is entitled to an opinion. I was really striving only for humor and not grinding an axe. Ahh....the pleasures of a shower in a decontamination chamber. HL
