    So… how safe is it to even move around in buses, taking drive-by pictures?

  2. Clay Farris Naff says:

    Astonishing to see the destructive power of the hydrogen blasts. You could interpret the results several ways: too little foresight or remarkable that the containment vessels survived as much as they did. Either way, of course, the challenge remains enormous, and the effect on the Japanese people is hard to fathom.

    I find it a good sign that one can visit Fukushima in the first place. No way was this possible with Chernobyl. What a difference in both scale and action taken. This also takes a bit of the wind out of the secret conspiracy nutter sails.

  4. I think the term they are looking for is not “crippled” so much as “ruined,” or perhaps “destroyed,” or maybe “OMGWTF?!?”
