I wish Shuji wasn't so descriptive on the findings of the victims. I mean, it's disgusting to me, but could be mind boggling to a relative or a friend of a victim who may have not been found yet reading this.

I agree with the previous poster - maybe a bit of TMI (too much information). On the other hand, this is, most sadly, the reality of it all. It's all so overwhelming and nearly impossible to fathom. May all the victims please rest in peace.

^ exactly, and maybe he was venting what he had seen. With some it helps to talk about it. But the reporter could of left the extras out. Also I can't begin to imagine what he must be going through, knowing that the victims he described are most likely not to be the last he sees. What a thing to look forward too, I hope he can at least find a few more survivors.

A big thanks to those who are doing their best with this task of finding & dealing with those who didnt make it, must be very traumatic for them, take care best you can!

Reading this article has put real tears in my eyes, I can only imagine what Shuji must be feeling.

Unbelievable. 22,000 dead or missing, and hundreds of thousands in shelters. I just hope somehow Kan can rise to the occassion and, now that the reactor crisis appears in some amount of control, marshall the support needed to address the human suffering. That has gotten somewhat lost in all the talk of nuclear meltdown, which is terribly unfortunate. The reactors are history. They will never function again. But these lives need to be re-built.

Seems like the article has been edited. There's no mention of a "Shuji" in the article.

Ok,I'm not the only one who didn't see a "Shuji". I pray that everyone in the affected area can some day find peace and smile again... I know my family in Shichigahama is surviving on bare minimums, I hope all others can do the same.

In the previous version of this article, before obvious editing took place, an interview with a man named "Shuji" who was part of a recovery team and who described the horrific condition of the bodies which had been found after many days in water. Not a pretty description at all. Much too graphic for many of the early readers.
