    The debris is washing up on Vancouver Island as we speak.

    One wonders if that’s where a lot of radioactive water ends up as well.  eeeeek.

    Either the ABC or CBS evening news reported Thursday the approaching debris field and speculated that even cars might be floating up on the West Coast, which I find very hard to believe. It did remind me of the old National Lampoon spoof VW ad though, “If Ted Kennedy drove a Volkswagen, he’d be president today.”

    Sorry to dive to a low denominator, but I liked the caption of that photo in the linked NatGeo page…
