At Least There's That

I'M sure I don't have to tell you that there's precious little of the usual fun to be had when the public display of transparent official bullshit is being overrun by news which devastates a nation and claims thousands of lives. We have gone from idiots announcing--simply because they wanted to--that the Japanese nuclear industry survived the earthquake without a scratch, to the sorry and familiar spectacle of statements becoming inoperative before they make it to YouTube. There are easier ways to prove what liars we're surrounded by. For that matter, it's not like there's any great need at this point.

I have to admit, however, to a certain residual satisfaction that the latest, perhaps greatest, threat is proving to be lack of water in the spent fuel pool, which the Japanese apparently did not know should just have been shoved under a desk.

Well, to return to a properly serious attitude: at least we managed to get the Ronald Reagan out of harm's way in time.

Isn't the reason there are so many "Pirates" off the Horn of Africa due to the West's nuclear waste being dumped in their waters?
