"A Letter from a MUSE fan" by Karl W. Klein

Dear Mr. Wasserman -

I am writing to you today since you were one of the founders of
MUSE. I also just finished reading your Counterpunch article on the
recent outage in FL.  I see they are blaming a technician. This
could be true, but it doesn't ring true to me.

Anyway, I thought you might like to hear a story relating to the
MUSE concerts and the nuke business.  At the time of the MUSE
founding, I was serving on the USS NIMITZ - a nuclear powered
aircraft carrier.  I am originally from PA (just downwind from
Three Mile Island) and when news of TMI hit, I was on the ship -
deployed thousands of miles from home.  Having been in the Navy's
Nuclear Power Program, I had some idea of what was going on, unlike
most people at the time. Since my family was still there in PA, I
was very concerned for their well-being.  I still think that
Governor Thornburgh was more than lucky, since it turns out that,
at the time he was giving assurances to PA residents, nobody really
knew what was taking place.

At the time, I took great inspiration from the No Nukes Concerts
and I became hopeful for our country. Thank you for your efforts to
help put MUSE together.  I still get chills whenever I think of the
Warm Power of the Sun. It's one of my all-time favorite songs.  I
did attend a rally/protest at the Limerick Nuclear Power Plant in
SE Pennsylvania around 1980, but they still built it.

Sorry, I digress and I know you are a busy person.

I purchased the original MUSE soundtrack on vinyl at the time of
its original release. Unfortunately, I played it a LOT.  Now, I
would like to obtain a copy of the concert soundtrack on CD. Do you
know if this is available?  My searching has failed to find this.
If it is not available, perhaps it can be re-released?  At least
maybe on iTunes?  Maybe a DVD?

Thanks for any help you may be able to provide and thanks also for
your vision for a different future for our country and energy.  Too
bad we have wasted all this time.

Yes, I am a "peak oil doomer" and hold out little hope for a sane
energy policy.  I am glad to be old since I don't think our country
will wake up in time to our energy realities.

Kindest regards,
