Here on the northern California coast I have eaten the last dungeness crab that I can trust to not be irradiated. This delicacy of our northwest coast is treasured by so many. Now the nucleur plants of Japan have put all northern pacific sea life in danger. But the beautiful dungeness crab will not be safe to eat from this day forward. And, that makes a grown man cry........

With my history of commercial truck driving, I have a little bit to relate, that may be, or may become, relevant.
At some locations, along the way of the drive in, the semi rigg passes through a radiation detector. Yup, some nogoodnik might try to schlep some nastiness in, and that is not to be had.
Some time soon, variations on that detection technology might be employed. Any, catch of the day, would pass through it. The closer to the catch, as in, on the boat, the better, put in any case, as close to the point of extraction as practicable.
I thought of this because I'm a seafood lover too. I've recently taken to enjoying Kelp, and other ocean vegetation. Now this, seven tons / hour!
The people of the seafood industry will not want their business to crash for the loss of consumer confidence.

How Stupid Has the Democratic Party Become?

Republicans haven’t taken over red states; Democrats have lost them by not running as real Democrats.

That’s my big takeaway from Alec MacGillis’ fascinating look into the biggest political mystery of our time: why poor white people in red states are not bothering to turn out to vote, leaving the field to Republicans elected by more affluent whites in those states.
