"Joseph Clark Grew (May 27, 1880 – May 25, 1965) was an American career diplomat. The 13 Ambassador to Japan beginning in 1932. He was the American ambassador in Tokyo at the time of the Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor (December 7, 1941) and the opening of war between the United States and the Japanese Empire.Ambassador Grew was interned for nine months by the Japanese government, but he was released to return to the United States on August, 1942.

He stated officially during that time that the "Japanese thinking is 2000 years out of date", and their reasoning is often reactionary , as opposed to realism. This is what a high level white man had said!

She wasn't so strong up in Fukushima thankfully - but my apartment shook for half a minute or so. Not liking the increased frequency lately...

The storage tank for the highly irradiated water are just plonked onto the ground without any thought about earthquakes or tsunamis.

There are hundreds of water tanks. As much as I dislike TEPCO, the reality is there's nowhere else to put them. And it's better that they're closer to the plant than further away. Just glad the earthquake hasn't caused a calamity there.

I felt the shaking in tokyo for sure, turned on the TV for the news. I hope these morons at TEPCO and the ministry of energy or what ever it is in Japan is playing attention to the fact.. Japan is join to shake and move from today and always. if the power provider can't handle a 8mag or so... they should't be in business.

I think since March 11 earthquakes in japan are such big news now. They used to be something that you shrugged off as a regular thing.

Hold onto your computer monitor with one hand and try to type with the other till the shaking stops.
