... That Chip has been trying to determine where all of this is going to end up. As I said in yesterday's podcast, I consider any explosion at a nuclear reactor to be a bad thing so when 4-6 are having problems it really gets my notice. For that reason, I didn't post much yesterday after the previous day of multiple links, etc. but I'm watching developments and will be sharing my thoughts here and on the podcast as things continue to unfold.
For the moment here are things to keep an eye on:

This is not "pessimism porn" folks, this is the world we live in as of today. Be prepared.
