    This is a 99-cent read at best. It is written well enough for something that originally appeared in the "Style" section of the Washington Post, but the story itself, despite two moments of drama - the all-too-easy breaching of a multi-billion dollar nuclear facility by three protesters, and their conviction on some very serious charges - the rest is all local color made up of scant bits and pieces of history and biography. Until the Post put up its paywall, you could have read the whole thing on their site and saved it for future reference. But frankly there is not enough useful information in it to make even that worthwhile. I'll not be buying Post "singles" in the future.
