Day 540 On hiatus…

Dear Faithful 10 Readers,

I am travelling and do not have daily access to Internet. Entries will be sparse for the next couple of weeks, but when I am back home later this month, I will resume the daily updates. In the mean time, please have a look at the links on the right – in particular (you know this by now, of course) EX-SKF, ENENEWS, Enformable, and SimplyInfo. These are the cream of the crop if you want accurate info on the ongoing disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant and the vicinity.

This happened after the meeting, after the boy-wonder hastily departed, guarded by plain-clothes policemen. Many citizens remained in the hall, wanting to have the answers to their questions from the officials at the city’s bureau of environment. Instead of engaging the citizens, they started to remove them out of the hall, according to this blog who had the link to the IWJ video below.
