Valuable Perspective On The Japanese Earthquake  
This article is beautifully done and gives some much-needed perspective on the current situation in Japan, and is a welcome relief to the confusing reporting done in the English language media. Go read it. Seriously. Plus, it's got lovely statements in it like "Japanese does not have a word for excessive preparation." (It's true. They could probably make one up, but why would one want to? Being prepared is important!) So it's amusing and it's informative, and it explains why this is not the end of the world while respecting that, hey, life really sucks for some folks right now so have a little sympathy. How can you not read this?

I would love to see California take earthquakes that seriously.
