I guess this means No. 4 is melting down as we speak, right?

Tokyo (CNN) — Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant experienced full meltdowns at three reactors in the wake of an earthquake and tsunami in March, the country’s Nuclear Emergency Response Headquarters said Monday.

The nuclear group’s new evaluation, released Monday, goes further than previous statements in describing the extent of the damage caused by an earthquake and tsunami on March 11.

The announcement will not change plans for how to stabilize the Fukushima Daiichi plant, the agency said.

Reactors 1, 2 and 3 experienced a full meltdown, it said.


Holding a press conference now. Will update after.

… Weiner admits sending photos to a total of six women over the past three years, “most of them before my marriage.” Says he never met any of the women in person.

“I regret not being honest about this. I was embarrassed. I was humiliated.”

Says he and his wife will not be splitting up. Says they discussed his online relationships before they married, she thought they were over.

Time sure flies

I just realized I’m leaving for Netroots Nation next Tuesday. I guess I should pack, or something… or at least figure out why my printer isn’t working, so I can print out my airline tickets (courtesy of the AFL-CIO, who invited me to one of their panels).

I’m looking forward to Minneapolis. One of my best friends lived there for a bit, and raved about it. (Although I won’t get to see much of it, probably. Between panels, workshops and networking events, I’ll be lucky if I leave the hotel.)

You shouldn’t see a huge difference in blogging, since the convention center has wi-fi.


This is an amazing, heartbreaking, inspirational and thoroughly wonderful book — and if you buy one, you help to rebuild New Orleans. (Plus, it won a National Book Award.) Win-win!

Just when you thought it was safe

To go back in the water….
