Nagasaki Survivor Non-Plussed

Amidst all the hysteria, some words of sanity are still heard.

Yamashita Kazuko was five when Fat Man exploded over her hometown of Nagasaki in 1945. Now 71 and a grandmother living in Tokyo, she thinks the hysteria over Fukushima is overwrought.

"I maybe a bit too callouse about this due to the fact that I was really heavily exposed to radiation, but I don't think this is anything to turn pale over."

Her daughter Shigeko Hara is of the same mold, stoic. But she also has a backpack ready for an emergency evacuation. And since the earthquake she has been replacing the out of date food. Though such food has become scarce since the earthquake as other people also stockpile, denying her daughters Yuka and Akari of milk until recently.

Yep, I read the Ann Coulter column on Radiation http://www.anncoulter.com/
You should too.
A Glowing Report on Radiation-3/16/11

It will help you live to glow a little- it's not as bad as the scare mongers have led us to believe!

Yeah the media covered themselves in heaping gobs of shame with their hysteria. Bunch of overpaid, poorly educated, airheads.

Hey did not we just go through this in January when the Arizona democrat congresswoman was shot in the head and others shot and killed? The media came out and blamed Palin, Rush, Hannity and O'Reilly! I have my bumper sticker on for months now- I don't trust the Liberal Media. And Obama- One Big Assed Mistake America. And January 2012- the end of an ERROR!
