The chilluns! The Chilluns!
Yes, parents will work doubleshift to pay BigOil's exactions (4 US$ a gallon of 87 gasoline near where I live). The chilluns need statist daycare, and statist daycare needs to be safe.
Although the honorable members of the Cabinet and TEPCO honchos could shut down critics by sending their children grandchildren for a quarter of state education to Fukushima schools. Like that'll happen.
10 millisieverts is the Denver-area background radiation level, but obviously parents should decide that is safe or not.
But the government MUST decide. ALWAYS. And the government MUST be obeyed. ALWAYS.
What a travesty!
