It was 74 here today and I have all the windows open. The weatherman just told me it’s going to get cold and maybe even snow by Wednesday. Spring, why do you tease me like this?

Racism is so exhausting, because it’s based in what people already want to believe. I’m a little more concerned about the bankers who have looted this country, not people who took a loaf of bread to survive.
The boss of the company behind the devastated Japanese nuclear reactor today broke down in tears – as his country finally acknowledged the radiation spewing from the over-heating reactors and fuel rods was enough to kill some citizens.
Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency admitted that the disaster was a level 5, which is classified as a crisis causing ‘several radiation deaths’ by the UN International Atomic Energy.
Officials said the rating was raised after they realised the full extent of the radiation leaking from the plant.
They also said that 3 per cent of the fuel in three of the reactors at the Fukushima plant had been severely damaged, suggesting those reactor cores have partially melted down.
After Tokyo Electric Power Company Managing Director Akio Komiri cried as he left a conference to brief journalists on the situation at Fukushima, a senior Japanese minister also admitted that the country was overwhelmed by the scale of the tsunami and nuclear crisis.
He said officials should have admitted earlier how serious the radiation leaks were.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said: ‘The unprecedented scale of the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan, frankly speaking, were among many things that happened that had not been anticipated under our disaster management contingency plans.
‘In hindsight, we could have moved a little quicker in assessing the situation and coordinating all that information and provided it faster.’
Nuclear experts have been saying for days that Japan was underplaying the crisis’ severity.
Even though they were told two years ago that the plant could only withstand a 7.0 earthquake. They’re still lying.
Of course, we’re going to have to wait and see if the child gets refused admission to the Ivy League before we can assess damages.
Who won’t prosecute bankers’ crimes, but wants to bring the full force of the Justice Department down on college kids who burn DVDs.
