Japan Dodges Nuclear Bullet After Significant Earthquake

First, do apologize to my readers, but I have been on a three week sebatical to catch my breath, and map out strategy for this blog, and the Dead Baby World Tour...am only human here, and my battery was running very low.

The tragic events surrounding the horrific aftermath of Japan's 6.8 on the richter scale earthquake show us just how fragile and vulnerable nuclear reactors really are. It is only by God's grace that the damage done to Tokyo Electric Power's nuclear reactors was not far worse. As it is, this fleet of seven reactor built on a earthquake fault line (much like Entergy's Indian Point) should be permenantly shut down and decommissioned.

The Japanese government, much like the NRC, and Tokyo Electric Power (much like Entergy) tried to hide the significance of the problems from the public, have shown they cannot be trusted. To save lives, to save the world's youth the time has come to shut down these problematic and unsafe reactors.
