    The Japanese people have been models of noble resilience amidst devastation.

    I'd like to know how local religious organizations have responded to this crisis. Are there more people turning to Buddhist/local faith practices for strength and hope?

    As an immigrant from Hong Kong, I am also concerned for the health of my family and friends who live in neighboring Asian countries. What is the likelihood of food and water contamination spreading beyond Japan as a ripple effect in the aftermath of this disaster?

    The Mariana Trench was once considered a possible disposal site for nuclear waste. Can the spent rods and operating rods be plucked out of the reactors via helicopter and dropped in the trench. It seems that with the tectonic activity they may just disappear in time with no or very little surface contaminant.

    Mr. Cooper, Please take every precaution possible even get the heck out of there. You show so much compassion. You do the heart good. We need people like you. I told my husband the evening before the earthquake, that I felt a Big earthquake was comming. I can't explain the feeling other then it was very strong. My feeling for your safety is strong. PLEASE TAKE NO CHANCES! Radaition is scarey. There are badges you can wear that will detect radaition. They wear them in Nuke plants. You should have one on at all times under these conditions. Stay Safe!

    Thank God for another life spared! I hope Mr. Fales will come home to the USA soon and get to reunite with friends and family in person. I think they were all holding back a bit being on live TV. I would be freaking out!
