`Trying to find the source of plutonium found in the ground’ - BBC
I notice that often newsreaders first question is ‘what is the worst case scenario?’

Ate at a fancy restaurant with Shoko in Ginza, I think it’s only the second time that we have eaten in a restaurant since the 11th. Ginza is usually lively and full of neon, but due to the power outage, its dark and silent. The streets are empty, and the expensive restaurant was even offering free drinks to entice customers - we started with a 1982 champagne - that tasted more like port.
