No high-fives at VY

RE: “On joy and justice” [Viewpoint, Sept. 4]:

I can assure Chad Simmons that neither Vermont Yankee employees nor their families will be dancing in the street or high-fiving anyone, today or “eventually.”

The reality of impending job losses is anything but fear-mongering in any VY household at the moment.

Perhaps it is Simmons’ sense of reality that is skewed.
