Fukushima tragedy continues to deepen

They have found thyroid cysts in 35% of the 100,000-plus Fukushima-area children tested so far, including at least two cancers. The second largest lake in Japan is contaminated, and concerns are that more radioactive cesium is washing into it all the time. And the Japanese government appears to be understating the current levels of airborne radiation.

But hey -- it's all under control. Fukushima is in cold shutdown now. There's no longer anything to be concerned about. You'll only get a little radiation, and that can't hurt you, now, can it?
