    Thanks for posting this! I have been very interested, but there hasn't been much in the papers (and I don't watch the TV news).

    Wonderful that they're making progress and getting back to normal, though with the radiation problems, I think I'd just flee.

    Amazing what they have been able to achieve in such a short space of time. I salute the people of Japan who were so sorely hit by this disaster.

    Thanks for sharing that. I am truly amazed at how people recover from a disaster. It's just a piece at a time. I am a little OCD at times. I would like to think I could handle something like that, but I just don't know.

    What did they do with all the debris? Maybe we need to hire them to help in New Orleans. Of course maybe their government does not have all the red tape ours does. They are remarkable in what they set out to do.

    Yes, it is astonishing what they've done since that horrid time.
    And it makes me squirm to think of what a terrible, terrible mess our country would be in should such a thing happen here. Just remember New Orleans....my son went down there a day or so later with the National Guard Medical team. In a helicopter that was picking up patients, he took some pictures of people on roof tops waving for help, right next door were flashes of light from people shooting at them..not wanting to give up their loot they had stolen from stores and houses.

    Man, what a difference.

    That says a lot! Then the looters wonder why they're not getting help...
    A lot of Americans are just too spoiled. How can they respect their country if they don't respect themselves?
