I'm not sure what you're trying to say by this, but I recently saw this terrifying animated movie about one of the bombs going off in Japan and the very graphic portrayal of what followed. I can't believe people brought children to see it. It scarred me, lol.

What was the movie called? Was it "Barefoot Gen" by any chance? I read the manga version of that story, and it was utterly horrific.

Yeah, that! Brrr, just remembering it makes me shudder. But I am glad for seeing it, especially considering that the author more or less experienced that.

Thanks for the link.

I read a story about this in the Globe and Mail today; the vile and racist comments that followed made me want to puke. Between the comments on this story and the ones on the London riots, I despair for humankind.

i heard/read them as well

after the wholly disgusting revelations about Murdoch/gov't, and the 25% austerity campaign - these riots were certain to happen, however they may have begun - the white protesters might not have jumped in, were it not for the blacks, whether or not they were grabbing for iPads, etc., or whatever - they feel cheated, and they mirror the greed - but it's the injustice that motivates these riots

too easy to blame it on blacks. too easy to sit back and use it as an excuse for a bigger police state to harass non-protestors. too easy to use it to shift blame away from the actual perpetrators. according to some, the derivatives game, the crash, the consequent austerity, the subsequent rioting - these were all anticipated - that's why police forces have been militarising for years, and that's why there's been these gigantic police presences at political conventions and the obama inaugeral

kind of a self-fulfilling prophesy - the people rebel against police abuse

very sad
