btw Carp, from what I heard Japan refused the coolant b/c they have enough of their own (damn straight they had better have their own supply), but it couldn't be used for reasons I wrote above.

As I write this, you should see the reporters and announcers! They usually have one person sitting next to them handing them papers, sometimes changing papers to newer information while they are reading them. Just now the guy next to the news announcer said, "go into the lead again, and then read this" etc. They are not even bothering with ear mikes and all that. Everything I see is so ad hoc. My online blog I have started here is a mirror of that.
