Bag’s Take-Away:
The fear would be “more minorly” if the high zone on the meter had a long red line, instead of a green one, and the marking beneath the needle was green instead of red, and the woman in the background wasn’t wearing a mask (often seen in Tokyo due to everyday pollution).  Clever shot.

Tracking radiation levels in Tokyo: A minorly scary photo
Photo of the day: “A radiation detector marks 0.6 micro-sieverts, exceeding normal levels Tuesday, near Shibuya train station in Tokyo. Concern over possible radiation exposure has increased after a fourth reactor released radiation, Tuesday.” To compare – this level is higher than average, but only a tiny percentage of what’s happening at the plant. 1,000 micro-sieverts per hour equals one milli-sievert per hour. So this is high, but still minor. (Kyodo News/AP) source

As the situation gets more devastating, so do the analogies. Thinking of late WWII.

I hope I’m dead wrong but certain images coming out of Japan have the feeling — this family trekking on their own on a long dusty road lined with rubble — of a post-apocalyptic future.  #prayforJapan
