In non-Sarah Palin-related news...
Posted by Jill | 11:49 AM
Meanwhile, in news NOT related to Sarah Palin's bus tour (and there is some, though you'd never know it from the teevee), Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant may be in more trouble:
Officials from the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) are apologizing in advance for the fact that the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant is not ready for the high winds and heavy rain of Typhoon Songda, a massive storm that could make landfall in Japan as early as Monday.

The BBC quotes a TEPCO official as saying, "We have made utmost efforts, but we have not completed covering the damaged reactor buildings. We apologize for the lack of significant measures against wind and rain."

Buildings housing the plant's nuclear reactors are still standing open in the wake of crippling hydrogen explosions that followed Japan's March 11 earthquake and tsunami. The approaching storm could scatter highly radioactive materials into the air and sea. Plant operators are currently spreading "anti-scattering agents" around the buildings housing reactors one and four.

I don't know about you, but my days of eating wild Pacific salmon are over.

On the good side this might take some of the pressure off of sea life that is being hunted into extinction for sushi.
