Just In Case You Haven't Had Enough Bad News Lately...

...Think about this:

"Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) said March 12 that the explosion at the Fukushima Daiichi No. 1 nuclear plant could only have been caused by a meltdown of the reactor core, Japanese daily Nikkei reported"

Just thought you'd like to know.  Anyone out there want to make a bet about how many hours it will be until Sarah Palin cites this as a justification to drill, baby, drill?

Update:  Fox Business News has been reporting today that there is no damage to the Japanese nuclear plants, and that this "fact" justifies issuing a lot more permits for nuclear plants here in the United States.  The lies never end, no matter what damage they might cause.
