Subject: Ridiculous

On March 19, the Oregonian disparaged a TEPCO press release
about Fukushima Daini (number two) power station, which said
that all four reactors at that plant are cold and under control. 
They are.  The six reactor Fukushima Daiichi (number one) power
station is the one with troubles.  These two different power
stations are 11 kilometers apart. 

Tokyo Electric Power operates 17 reactors at three power
stations.  They are scrambling to provide power for millions,
while rebuilding their system.  Spoonfeeding basic science
to gaijin editors is not a high priority.  Saving lives is.

It is ridiculous that the news is filtered by those who don't
understand geography, science, engineering, or apparently, reading. 
Diligent readers should go to mitnse.com, wikipedia.org, or
straight to www.tepco.co.jp/en/index-e.html , to get the facts
from people who did not sleep through their science classes.
