Oh, By The Way: Didja Notice That Big Earthquake Off Japan Yesterday

...caused the Japanese to close down the biggest nuclear plant in the world?
Reuters reports, "Tokyo Electric Power Company shut down three major generators at the world's biggest nuclear power plant after a powerful earthquake in Japan on Monday caused a brief fire in one of the units, company officials said."
I'm pretty sure this is gonna be taken for bad news at Avila Beach, CA, where a big nuke plant sits almost astride an earthquake fault line.
It would be BEYOND ironic if Japan should become a site of nuclear devastation, again, this time at the hands of the 'peaceful' nuke, wouldn't it?
