“Throw a blanket over it”

Some things speak for (and parody) themselves.

The Daily Mail Online just reported:

Polyester tents will be placed over Japan’s stricken nuclear reactors in a bid to try and contain the escape of radioactive substances in the atmosphere.

The Japanese government plans to erect a steel framework and place a giant polyester tent-like cover around the (unit 1) reactor building – similar covers will be placed around units 3 and 4.

About Robert Singleton

By day, I work for a call center. In my spare time, I try to save my hometown (and planet) from a nearly constant onslaught of greedheads, lunatics and land developers. I live in a fictional town called Austin, Texas, where I go to way too many meetings.
