  1. 90 confirmed. I wonder how many are not confirmed but are sick anyway….I imagine most of them. Same with my friends in New Mexico…..once a great think tank of America, now poisoned with nuclear waste explosion…..they are going to die, it has been too long, our leaders are as corrupt and sold out as the Japanese.
    Without these great minds, we are really going down.
    Some of the brightest and the best worked there….lots of Cal Tech and MIT boys, this breaks my heart. I am sorry about the mess in Washington State, but when you know the people…..it is much harder to accept.
    Nuclear accidents completely surround CA. I tried urging a young friend to look for jobs in the east, she just got a promotion in her own job, so probably won’t……CA will be unlivable within a short period of time, and nobody will face or acknowledge it.
    I am appalled. Those of us here are truly voices in the wilderness……
