Meltdown

The latest news from the BBC, that there is a nuclear meltdown possibility in Japan, adds horror to the already humbling natural disaster of last week.  The people of Japan have endured much in their history - not least the atomic bombs the West dropped on them in 1945 - and they will come through this.  However, this is still a dreadful challenge for them - and an occasion of great national and international sorrow.  I wish Japan well at this terrible moment of crisis.
