The reunion of Peter,Paul and Mary was a nice story.
ETA: In case anyone missed it, there is an American teacher named Paul and his parents Peter and Mary have been unable to locate him..until CNN found him and they reunited on TV.

I refuse to worry about us until the US government calls an emergency session.WE may not be supposed to know when that happens, but I can almost guarantee that we will hear about it. It'll leak, (Absolutely no pun intended.).

However my refusal to worry about us, does not extend to Japan. I am absolutely frantic for them.

I have a concrete downstairs / basement thing, my wireless works down there - it's all good. Are we really thinking about this?

I'm in MI and I wrote down the iodine tincture instructions...what do you think? We aren't just thinking nad talking, we are planning. We might not be able to face it yet, but we are, well, preparing for the worst.

Not really - I think. Now I'm stuck on going to Coyote Ugly!!! I've been by there at night and seen the girls up on the bar (they leave the door open). I could use a couple of hours of fun (and drinking!) lol

Until we have contamination reports and readings confirming radiation approaching the U.S., I'm seeing it as speculation. I see no reason to fear the radiation occurring in Japan to mean we will be contaminated here in the U.S. Even their own evacuation is only 20-30 kilometers.

20 km = 12.4274 mi.
30 km = 18.6411 mi.

At 30 KM they expect radiation to be decreased to almost zero.
Dosen't mean it's true but only specific readings can tell the actual picture.

I agree that it's too soon to predict the outcome. But I still believe the public is due a statement from Washington stating exactly what you have just posted.

Hey, I'm thinking this: "it's time to consider what I would do if this gets crazy and radiation blows to our shores. Do I stay or do I go?"

I do have a lot of family in Nevada and they may have to scoot over if this issue becomes global. You bet I'll go over there.

Anderson questioning the truth of the government and/or the people running the plant. He's talking about the PM's statement now.

Why would he say these things if they weren't a concern?

So right Pel, the monitoring has already begun...

SPOKANE, Wash. -- Though the odds of radioactive fallout from Japan hitting Washington are remote, the Department of Health is monitoring air quality levels across the state as the nuclear emergency continues unchecked at the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant in Japan.

What about a dome? Ok ok ok - I know - Stephen King fan here. But still - what about it? Wouldn't it contain it? Could we get one that big that quick? I know they have built biospheres - couldn't they put that plant under a dome?

Hi Wise Old Owl, I just got back and started watching Anderson and he says it's live but I see no LIVE on the screen. Is this a repeat of earlier this afternoon? Well, if it is I hope they break in with any changes in status. xox

You're more likely to hear how they need to raise taxes to fund a long term study of the effects of Japans disaster on the environment.

They have a spare dome down in New Orleans, don't they? I hear it's empty now.
