-- NEW YORK TIMES -- A United Nations forecast of the possible movement of the radioactive plume coming from crippled Japanese reactors shows it churning across the Pacific, and touching the Aleutian Islands on Thursday before hitting Southern California late Friday.
Oh, man... "a radioactive plume"... and it's "churning across the Pacific" right at us... but wait, hang on a sec, a couple of graphs later...
On Sunday, the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission said it expected that "no harmful levels of radioactivity" would travel from Japan to the United States "given the thousands of miles between the two countries."

LAST WORD: Apparently, it's a no-fact zone
"Yeah. Exactly. So shut up with the panic already."
