If the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear melt downs were not bad enough, spare a thought for the old farts who are now panicking because they fear a shortage of parts for their Honda cars...a whole segment on BBC news about car spares !

I'm lucky enough to live in Japan (nowhere near the affected areas) - its been a horrible few days, but hopefully the worst is now over. The country has taken a massive hit, but very few are better equipt to recover.
Words fail me at the above video. The worrying thing is that she is a young girl. Whoever has put those ideas in her head is guilty of child abuse as far as I am concerned. And now her safety is at risk. Maybe she should go to Japan and pray over the bodies of innocent people who did nothing to deserve what happened to them.
If that figure is accurate she has 80,000 reasons to hang her head in shame.
