And on to something completely different -- who would have thought you could bring a piece of rock core to 'Show and Tell'? The fact you can bring it in little pieces might tell you something. When we were coring in good rock, you had 10 foot solid cores. Now, that would be something to bring in!
I thought for sure they are going to go 'low profile' on this, and not release the report. So, it is with great joy that I can leave totally depressing Japan, and general nuclear panic, and go back to pure geology. I really don't want to write about Japan anymore, or the local nuclear plant response to this. :(
