    You may find the following link usefull.

    It is the Prime Minister of Japan and His Cabinet Website,  English Language version.  It provides the official position of the Japanese govt.  and its concern.  You can see that the nuclear crisis is of concern to the Govt, amougst other things.

    On another matter, I wish to apologize for coming out swinging on this issue with you.  I am tired and taxed.  Though that is no excuse, I hope it at least offers a partial explanation.  

    I am, as I wrote below, disappointed and frustrated with the way in which the nuclear crisis has overshadowed the humanitarian one, particularly here at the dkos.  While that my be just my opinion, and you, obviously do not need my seal of approval for what you chose to right on, I do hope you remember to be cautious about conflating your concerns and priorities with the concerns and priorities of the Japanese government and the people of Japan.

    They clearly are not the same.

    Anyways, thanks for your time. I do appreciate it and once again sorry for being pugnacious.

      and that's why I made sure to include a statement yesterday so that it would not go ignored. Had I access to today's headlines yesterday, I would have said >20,000 dead or missing instead of >10K.

      But let's not lose sight of the humanitarian side:
         Japan quake dead, missing nears 21,000: Report

      and for those who want to help, Charity Navigator sorts through who to give to, and where the money goes. See also the latest mothership for donation suggestions and the latest news.

      but see headlines and relative font size.
