Steve Morse has published a brief message on his official site:

This disaster is sobering and heart breaking. Having been in Japan and admired their earthquake preparedness, who could have imagined so much tragedy from a Tsunami in Japan? Those folks who are helping others in the face of unknown risks are true heroes. Let’s hope and pray that the suffering is mitigated as much as humanly possible.

Thanks to BraveWords for the info.

    Japanese purple fans did not support Steve Morse.
    Most of Japanese purple fans are Rainbow believer.
    They are influenced by Japanese heavy metal magazine, “Burrn!”.
    Their intelligence appears to be low.
    But I wish good luck to the tsunami victims.

    @4: You apologize for being highly naive.

    Tesco, the owner of the atomic plant, has been lying about the level of radiaton.

    Latets news is that the workers haven´t got safety approved equipment/clothes to take on the task to put out the fires. Some were badly burned b/c they just worked in ordinary boots.

    All these japanese authorities/ceos do is to bow and apologize.- Now they just have to wait for the ricochet!

    Ok, now repeat after me. The caps letters are used only in begining of word.
    And…
    From time to time words are ended and dot (.) is putted to mark it.

    @7 Shouldnt that be TEPCO not TESCO?

    TEPCO is Japanese power company, while TESCO is a global grocery and general merchandising retailer.

    I dont think its easy to breath in plastic houses.
    How about the windows for light?
    Plastic melts(No pun intended)when sun becomes too hot.
    Plastic water?

    Honourable Japanese or not….
    Building nuclearplants and houses on dangerous places is a big risk.
    Its a choice.

    They have gained so much profits for decades that it becomes seductive to draw a balance between what was won and now lost.

    Personally I think WE should not take such risks but in general I think choices are being made thinking : On the whole we win.

    People dont want to hear :
    This is where it ends, you have to do with LESS because circumstances dictate it.
    Everywhere in the world everything is pushed to the limits for maximalisation of fullfilling of desires.

    Maybe inbetween answes/solutions will be found to avoid it but like this I think we will destroy a lot more than we like to imagine.

    “Too many people,too many bodies.
    How can we all survive?”
