(The Control Room at Three Mile Island - March, 1979)

"I think we're into something that . . that is a different ballgame than we'd expected. I don't think that I've seen anything that indicates that we're not really prepared to handle what we've found ourselves involved in. And to date, we have not given excessive exposure to any member of the public" - Metropolitan Edison spokesman Jack Herbine.

Slowly the danger was being contained, but everyone was still pretty much in the dark as to what was happening and what could happen and how long this would go on for. As Herbine said; it was a whole different ballgame.
