    I wanted to say thank you for your coverage about the earthquake in Japan. However, I have a nephew over there on the USS Essex and am of course, very worried. Can someone please address the troops of ours and if they are ok and let us know things such as: Are they being exposed to the radiation and if so are they being covered with the iodine treatments?, Are all of our troops accounted for. I don't mean to be selfish because I do care about the Japanese but am of course worried about my nephew and American Troops.
    Thanks in Advance: Concerned Aunt

    Why is any country on the "Ring of Fire" allowed to have nuclear plants? IUt is complete idiocy. Geothermal should have been considered instead even tho" it is more expensive. The more nations use this method the cheaper it would get.

    Also, I live in Whitby, Ont., Can. between two nuclear plants "Pickering" and "Darlington" and have already experienced a minor earth shift due to a fault in Lake Ontario. It was also felt in Toronto with high rises experiencing the buildings swaying. Are we next? There is another nuclear plant on Lake Huron. These plants pose a risk to the world's best water supply. Does anyone out there care? Is money the only driving factor or can we get beyond this?

    Prof Sjodaor on the 9 oclock news. what ever he said no danger you get more radiation from a cat scan. there is dust or smoke floating out of the site, ask about the exposure to that and its contents. another question is the water they are cooling it with were is the waste water being contained.

    why are they not using radiation detectors to determine what is in the air?
    there is no way that they do not know what the contamination levels are. If the people are going to die, they want to know. If I need to get in the car and drive to the east coast, I want to know ...

    Couldn't they line cooling from the generators off of some nuclear subs that could pull up close to the plants...?

    How safe is our military and their family now that nuclear plant is braking down. How for away is the Yokota Air force base and why are we not talking about our own people who are not being sent home.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Japan as well as for the rescue workers and the victims' families. The devastation there is horrible!
