I am from Japan, after reading this:
and came across your article, Ms. Burstiner (Mercy is Ms maybe, sorry if I am mistaken in advance.)
"So offer us data we can believe. Don’t try to minimize the damage we read into it. Instead connect us to experts who can tell us how to further minimize the damage you say is minimal, especially in what we feed our kids."
I think this is your job. Media's job.
Connect experts from reliable sources to improve people's knowledge and understanding about radiations and radioactive particles?
All those names like iodine 131, caesium of different numbers, and all?
How about solutions and approaches to clean radiation from your environment?
Why with all time, energy, manpower, (and family safety you have) resources, do you ask others (of who exactly) to explain?
Why do you wait?
If my understanding is correct, your location, California, is similar to Japan and has experiences and skills, and tons resources for your research, then why do you wish someone to act?
You have everything you need at your hand and cannot see where it is?
Even it is the very role of yours - to "explain" and be useful for your readers who essentially depend on your media for information relevant to their safe, normal living?
Or does a government have to do everything?
Here, everyone has roles - do you even look for people, individuals, companies, people affected taking their roles on the information digging and sharing.
In Japan, what role did and still do media take? Do you know?
Have you even opened web sites of Nikkei to see what role it takes on radiation fear in Japan?
Strange article to our eyes.
