I questioned earlier whether we might not have heard if the workers had been relieved - in the military sense, not the fired sense. The 50 who remain have not and only those who were "evacuated" from the plant earlier this week have gotten out. For the 50, that's seven days in a high stress situation, getting sleep when they can, running short of supplies, watching news conferences in which Corporate Bosses spin things and make them feel abandoned, and only now are resources being diverted to the site and maybe, maybe, they'll get to go home as, hopefully, people can step in and take over.
Fucking insane. Japan needs its own NEST Team. Last week.
