    The full story isn't coming out about the explosions and effects. Japan and US are leaving out penitent information. I understand trying not to alarm the world, but there are truths that are not released. 4 reactors are acting up, 2 explosions, radiation is leaking into the atmosphere, What are the atmospheric currents? What are the ocean currents. Fish, you think mercury is a problem with fish. Just wait now. They are trying to cool the reactors, the uranium and plutonium rods with salt water. Where does that salt water go? It is cycling in and out. Where is the out going? A pond? Where does the water in the pond go? Ultimately... the ocean. This is a worldwide disaster. It could be a Cheranobyl and Three Mile Island. It probably will be. People are testing positive for radiation activity. What is the news doing? Candy coat it all.
    Te tsunami was awful. And deserves news time. As we all know, they will recover better than ever. The nuclear issue will not. Come on folks, lets get the real deal on the nuclear, radiation issues.
