(OT) To Readers of this Blog

It's not that there isn't any more news about the Fukushima I NPP accident or about the Japanese politics or about anything I want to write about. There are plenty.

But since this summer I have had to take care of my health problems (nothing major but nonetheless needing attention) while at the same time doing whatever I can to make ends meet, and I simply have not had a decent enough chunk of time to research and write a post. I'm a slow writer and it often takes several hours to write a single post.

A quick thank-you to people who have kindly donated to this blog since late last year and whom I have failed to thank in person. I'm not doing this for money, but it helps me keep going. Thank you.

Y.K. from Ithaca, New York
S.L. from Vienna, Austria
E.P. from Diemen, Netherlands
S.L. from Joseph, Oregon
J.F.K. from Victoria, Australia
M.L. from Levie, France
B.K. from Japan/Germany
A.T. from Severna Park, Maryland
J.K. from Chassell, Michigan

Special thanks to S.L. in Vienna, Austria, who has regularly donated a generous amount for over three and a half years now, from the very beginning of the Fukushima nuclear accident.

And thank you everyone who come to my blog to read my posts. I'll be back soon.


For those who do Twitter, I manage to tweet (as it is short) articles, comments. But those are not limited to the nuclear accident, and most of them are in Japanese (I'm trying to tweet in both Japanese and English). My English-speaking followers must be very frustrated. You could follow me @exskf.

Thank YOU!!! For all that you have done, much more knowledgeable, informative & responsible than nearly all media & so-called 'authorities'/power-wielders around this entire world. This is what the Internet is best for.
THANK you!

Feel free to include how Westerners' responses to topics at hand appear to a Japanese person. We, they, may actually learn something. About ourselves.

I would like to know too, Anonymous. Am interested in Japanese people and culture, as my late grandmother had a great appreciation for Oriental art (for instance) in all of it's forms. Her gardens were breathtaking, and clearly inspired from across our shared great ocean.
It is very difficult at best for me to learn anything by what i say, only by what i learn from many wonderful and respectable people, such as LaPrimavera.
Domo arigato gozaimashita, Ultraman. May your spirit see love, fulfillment and joy for ten thousand years, in my humble prayer.

Dud said...

... in the mean time, and in between time, FIGHT IT with all the strength of the intellect of your spirit, including what must be a wide arsenal! I look forward with hope to your upcoming posts.

Best wishes to you from me as well. I - as, I'm sure, many others - will be anxiously awaiting your return to full health and your blog.

Thinking of you, LaPrimavera.

I hope Dr. Yamashita is haunted by smiling faces everywhere he goes.

Thank you for your insightful comments about the Japanese society and how it interacts with the nuclear industry. Sweden (one of the most reactordense countries in the world) resembles your country in many ways,
- extremely powerful nuclear industry
- weak democracy due to "zombie" ppl, -> easy to manipulate

Take care, listen to some Chopin e.d /robert
PS: I said it before: I would really like the idea of you writing a book, I have appreciated your thoughts about "things", but first things first :your health!

Since "O/T" is the undisputed theme here, here's another ..

Friedman, once again, 'concept-bombing' the species' common sense:

"It has to stop, not so we "save the planet." The planet will always be here. This is about us."
Surely he was talking about the dumping of reverse osmosis salts .. back into the Mediterranean and the inevitable increase of salinity over time of the Mediterranean? Surely.

[And his inspiration, surely: ]
