Wall Street Journal:

Mr. [Mitch] Singer [a spokesman for the Nuclear Energy Institute, an industry trade group] said he doesn't think the accident in Japan will derail the U.S. nuclear boom. In fact, he said the explosion should reassure Americans that their own plants will be prepared for any emergency, because the industry will disseminate lessons learned in Japan around the globe, helping other reactors shore up their defenses against even devastating natural disasters, like the quake and the tsunami that followed.

Because if the history of nuclear power shows anything, it's that any publicity is good publicity!
