Today (from the viewpoint of the US/West Coast) Japan was hit by an earthquake. The news is alive with tales of at least one burning refinery, an atomic power plant overheating on the NE coast of Honshu, an 8.9 Earthquake and a massive tsunami that has killed hundreds.

My hopes and best wishes go out to the people of that nation. They were prepared (as much as anyone could have been for one of the five largest earthquakes since 1900), but there have still been far too many casualties.

What am I saying? Mother nature can be a b*tch, and people should remember that no matter how powerful we think we are, no matter how safe we may think we are, the universe is capable of dealing us some pretty unpleasant cards. And now is the time for those of us outside the immediate blast zone to try and provide what help we can to the souls caught at ground zero.
