Constantly Thinking of Japan

Like a lot of people with ties to Japan (I grew up there, and my father still lives there as a retired diplomat) I’ve been having a difficult time with thinking of anything other than what’s going on over there. I wish them my best. And I worry.

I don’t have much more to say than that. I wish the American cable networks were many levels less hysterical. I wish journalists were more specific in their coverage. But Americans like to be outraged and worried. We want some good TV from their Lay-Z-Boys.

This thing is real. 50 workers are right now doing their best to contain the reactors. And millions more are quietly getting by and doing their best, with incredible dignity.
