Instead of that pretty little explanation of how he is a victim of posting and reposting his original message he should have just said "Ladies and Gentlemen thank you, but I digress." He would have gotten a little more respect and maybe even a laugh out of me.

I was there roughly at the same time as you (86-87), in Nagoya. At once it seems like a long time ago and seems like yesterday.

Another (probably biased) take on the reactor situation.

Japan: whatever happened to the nuclear meltdown? Telegraph Blogs

Japan likely to scrap all reactors at contaminated Fukushima nuke plant

They really had no choice from the beginning but to scrap the damaged reactors.

Let the comparisons to Chernobyl now begin, because the article says that the people in the evacuated cities are not returning home "anytime soon". Looks like we have another Pripyat on our hands. Very sad.

That project would take a year here just to get the approval for the permits. Then you would have one goverment worker actually working while six others lean on their shovel and 10 foreman yelling out instructions.
