The Times has just this moment posted a story headlined "Japan Faces Prospect of Nuclear Catastrophe as Workers Leave Plant" (the Times sends sound alerts to the iPad -- a couple of nights ago both the Times and Drudge woke me up in the middle of the night to tell me ---- what was it that night? Hosni Mubarak? Colonel Gadahfi? nuclear meltdown? I don't even remember at this point ---- )
Ed's reading Le Monde out loud; Le Monde is saying the Japan situation is worse than Three Mile Island, not as bad as Chernobyl. There's a French blogger on the scene, who says the Japanese government is not giving out very much information.
