Headlines Aren't Upsetting You Enough These Days?

Try this one on for size:

"Powerful Typhoon Wipha heads for Fukushima...Huge flood potential for area around plant — Forecast to grow and strengthen, up to 40-foot waves off Japan coast"

Have a nice day.

When it hits they'll say God did it and they'll blame Obama.

This is number 26 for the year – rather late in the year for this - but this is the strongest since 2004.
It should be hitting around now, time of writing, at morning peak hour. If people weren’t locked into corporate dutifulness the sensible thing would be to stay home, but they won’t. They’ll grit their teeth and push through the wind and rain. Some people will bed down in the office.

We’ll just hope for the best - because there is nothing else you can do. It will take decades to decommission and clean up that piece of radioactive corporate appeasement and in that time there will be any number of unusually strong taiphoons and many major quakes.
