Good luck Stack,
If I wasn't an atheist I'd be praying for you.  And thank you for posting your story, I was in LIFE, not the seed, but your description was eerily accurate, minus Art Barker.  We had George Ross (who was almost never there) and Helen Peterman (who was almost always there).  Please keep yourself safe.

Fukushima nuclear plant

Here is a clear picture.

Use your mouse over the images.

The Fukushima nuclear plant looks pretty compromised. I've read that close to 200,000 people have been evacuated?

The Wikipedia article on this nuclear plant has also been updated with regard to this disaster. Here's a pic of Unit 1, which has since, along with a few other units at this plant, experienced even worse troubles:


    Image of Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant Unit 1 before and after explosion

    "Unit 1 is a 439 MW boiling water reactor ([[Boiling water reactor #First series of production BWRs(BWR/1??"BWR/6)|BWR-3]]) constructed in July 1967. It commenced commercial electrical production on March 26, 1971, and was initially scheduled for shutdown in early 2011. In February 2011, Japanese regulators granted an extension of ten years for the continued operation of the reactor.[25] It was damaged during the 2011 Sendai earthquake and tsunami.[26]"[/list]

    Glad to hear you are safe, Stack.  I was scheduled to fly to Tokyo yesterday.  Obviously, I'm now not going.  My Japanese associates are struggling in the aftermath with deaths now believed to be in the tens of thousands.  God help those who remain in an earthly hell...

    I would have PM you but since you were fucked with so much I can understand lack of email. So I guess I will do it this way.

    Stack I feel for you. Okinawa has maybe 80,000 marines on the island, Iwakuni (mspl) has at least 20,000 on mainland Japan along with the Air Force on Japan and Okinawa. I was over in Okinawa and Iwakuni for 2 years with a stint in So. Korea.
    What a shame you are in this circumstance.
    Listen if you are in need of cash or whatever PM me and I can help as much as I can. I am sure there are ways to set up ways to funnel monies to you. You said you have a blog, some folks I know who have been layed off have set up donations vehicles on their blog, either through paypal or credit card.
    Just trying to help ya brother. I have also been overseas doing work earlier in my life and got stuck a few times, although for different reasons.

    ???????? ( I hope I spelled that right)
    Because people long ago caused suffering, there is no justification to wish  more suffering now. That said, the notion of Nanking, and poor japanese people in the same sentence. It's called the Rape of Nanking for a reason. Imperial japanese committed more and more serious crimes, against many more than the nazis, yet, oddly, they as a nation have never been held to world shame as have the Germans. Russians ain't no great shakes either. does the foregoing make me a 'hater'
    Here's a question for you..If I declare that I hate poverty and ignorance and brutality, is that a hate crime?
    J.O.M.

    Stack, thanks for the insight into the suffering of the Japanese. It is surreal.
