serious leak

oh, no, now the japanese nuclear plant
is leaking, leaking
enormously
(on npr, this)
as i started to blog here
i was going to complain and make excuses for myself:
i downloaded a new operating system
and my head might
explode from new 
and found a new word processing program
thanks to carol
finer than the dastardly and horrific microsoft 
product
but that news pales next to leaking
radiation.
more.
again.
more.

Velma - if you get this it is a miracle. blogger won't let me leave comments. sadly, I think the plant has always been leaking and the gov't has just been lying about it, I know that is what the people believe. I think we are all going to turn into mutant ninjas

my whining turned into embarrassment. i, who grew up near an environmental disaster, decided to say, oh, no!

Been reading about the leak and cover up in alternative news for a long time - since the tsunami. It REALLY troubles me that it must be soo bad now it can no longer be covered up. But I never know these days who is exaggerating more - what news does one trust?

Yes, we probably already are mutant somethings, but I doubt Ninjas or turtles. Well, maybe we'll become part turtle.

Velma Bolyard said...

valerie, becoming turtle might be a good thing. the mutant part, not so good. sigh.

the japanese are much like the spanish govt. if they ignore or cap the facts they think it will go away.
rain then becomes deluge and then mud slides.

My head is leaking as well. There was salmon from Miyage prefecture in my supermarket today. (Miyage is a few kilometers from Fukushima.
