Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I really think, given the events of the past few days, that we should have more serious regulation of organic farming, to prevent the type of social meltdowns now happening in Japan.

If Monsanto was building reactors, you can bet they would be immune to even meteor strikes. Not to mention they would already have the tomato sauce genetically basted in.

I really think if all that comes out of this incident is 160 confirmed cases of radiation exposure, compared with all the chemical contamination from wrecked car batteries or with entire towns of tens of thousands of people being washed out to sea, the nuclear accident will actually be the least of this earthquake's long-term impacts.

You almost sound like you're itching for an actual reactor core explosion.

So, in what may be my last act of "advising", I'll advise you to cut the jargon. -- My old PhD advisor, to me, 26/2/11

Please don't project into my comments.

Please don't assume we have reached the end of "all that comes out of this incident."

Please don't make a disconnect from the reason we assume we can build nuclear plant to the reason there's chemical contamination from wrecked car batteries.

Please don't post errant nonsense such as

Sarcasm is still legal, no?

as sarkasm, then.

I've seen some things in the past few days that I wish I could assume were sarcasm ~ Japan "had it coming" because of Pearl Harbor (US), or because of its materialism (Japan).

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
