    Decontamination has been a pipe dream that has been sold by central government politicians trying to retain power to the Japanese people who are desperately looking for a solution. It is a dire shame that it is taking this long for the schools to respond to the farce in the only way possible, by shutting down for the sake of the children.

    And the capitalists said "Hey, we make electricity with that"
    And the governments said "Hey, don't worryaboudit! It's SAFE!
    And then TEPCO said "bu-dit wasn't our FAULT!!!
    And then the U.S. government and media said "_________"
    And then I said "&%#*+@#%¥¥¥¥¥$$$$$$$"
    And then the town Mayor said "Go home children and wait to die"
    And then Mother Nature said "beam me up Scotty, no measurable life forms down here"
