Right. What does Tokyo need with tap water?

Let them drink beer?

They've just pushed the evacuation zone further out from the plant.

This is not over by a long shot and neither you nor Don nor I know what will come of it.

The biggest point of concern, however, is that they said it can't happen, yet, it did.

We won't know how bad it was until it's all wrapped up, which is a long way off. It could still get worse.

All we know for sure is that it wasn't supposed to get this bad, but it did, and apparently it's getting worse every day.
