Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
For Fukushima's Farmers, Growing Uncertainty : NPR

As Japan continues to grapple with the effects of the March 11 earthquake, the prefecture of Fukushima faces some of the biggest challenges.

Fukushima's roads were damaged in the earthquake, its coast was battered by the tsunami and now leaking radiation around the crippled nuclear complex has made parts of the prefecture unlivable.

The tsunami pushed seawater more than 2 miles inland in some places. Rail lines in Fukushima -- Japan's third-largest prefecture -- were destroyed along the coast; train traffic still hasn't resumed through the prefecture. Radiation from the leaking nuclear complex has forced tens of thousands of residents from their homes. The sale of many vegetables from Fukushima has been banned

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
