Japan's nuclear disaster

Passed along in email was this update on the finagling going on in the wake of the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant disaster in Japan.

The piece is both clear and compelling and stands as a reminder that just because things are "over," that doesn't mean they are really over.

As usual, the bottom line is, "follow the money."

And, in the same email delivery, came this update on a small segment of the ongoing reaction by the Vatican to its pedophile abuses of the past.

Just because I forget and forgot doesn't mean it's forgettable or forgotten.

Let alone forgiven.

  1. I think a large portion of the history that's taught is the stories of folks who lacked the capacities of conscience. Their misdeeds are innocent of an ability to do other than they did. Forgiving a dog for being a dog is a silly and pointless idea. Unforgivable things happen, but your forgiveness of them only benefits yourself. Could or did you or somebody do something about it? There again, it's just us doing what we know how to do. What else can we do? And what is there to forgive?
