I've felt like just weeping for Japan since Friday. Such devastation. And then add in the nuke threat and it just... It's a damn cryin' shame. I know there's people out there cheering because it means Japan now needs US assist (well, actually, they're getting assist more from Russia at this point) and it could mean, somehow and some way, more money for the US pocketbook...somehow. I don't understand the logic they use, I really don't.
What I see is a country, a beautiful and ancient country, devastated by the Earth.
I'm reminded of Ellison, his short-short, Ecoawareness, in which the Earth wakes up.
So I weep for Japan and I hope for the best. I'm expecting the worst, but I'm hoping, hoping for the best. I expect to be pleasantly surprised this time.
