You're only dancing on this earth for a short while

The news from the triple meltdown at Fukushima has been getting worse by the day -- Greenpeace is screaming about radiation it's finding the ocean, for example -- but here's a story that's really heavy: A number of retired Japanese engineers are volunteering to go back to work to try to seal off the damage caused by the nuclear disaster. They know that whoever takes the job may wind up dying from it, and they'd rather have it be them than folks who have their whole lives ahead of them. May heaven bless them and help them.

Greenpeace and Amnesty International used to have my complete sympathy years ago. However, both outfits have descended into feckless and partisan and often very juvenile activism over the years: both are hypocritical and intolerant.

My point is that now when Greenpeace (or AA) screaming and shouting should carry enormous weight - who believes them? Opportunists eventually lose their vlaue, ask Duddy Kravitz (or Tom Hayden).

Not to be rude.

Maybe Lenny Kravitz should speak up.

I am truly moved by their sacrifice and I hope that the folks in power take them up on their offer.

I note that we don't see any of the designers from GE, now, do we?

How about negative dividends from shareholders?

Oh, I forgot: Profits = Capitalism, losses = Socialism. Heads I win, tails you lose.

Maybe Jack Welch could pick up a shovel.
