Not fond of the Tri-Cities, necessarily, but my wife is from Richland, so it does have some redeeming value.
I like to give her crap about her high school's mascot.
Before you go back to Hanford, you might want to check out the leaking Million gallon TransUranic waste tanks that are leaking into the Columbia river. Isotope levels are 50,000 times higher than normal. They are burping Hydrogen gas too.
The radioactive contamination over the Military Site is so high you cannot bring food onto the reservation.
