BACKGROUND: 
                 Newly leaked documents show that Southern California Edison has no way of inspecting its high-level nuclear
waste canisters for deadly cracks that could result in  a nuclear disaster. The documents also show that Edison will begin burying the waste on the beach as early as November under the terms of a secretly-negotiated out-of court settlement deal between Citizen’s Oversight (a Delaware Corporation) and Southern California Edison.  Edison will be explaining the “”deal” this evening at its Community Engagement Panel meeting in Oceanside.
