A blast from the past

Chernobyl power plant, encased in a sarcophagus.

The ongoing developments in Japan, especially at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, are terrifying to me. I’d go into detail about what’s happening there right now, but it seems that with every hour that passes, something new is happening. Another reactor explodes. More efforts to curb the radiation. A rare outburst by Japanese Prime Minister Naoto, who stormed into the Tokyo Electric Power Company and demanded to know: “What the hell is going on?!”

No spectators in the Bertuzzi incident

The attack by Bertuzzi on Moore.

It’s been seven years to the day since my father and I saw the worst hockey game of our lives, in Darby’s Pub at 4th and MacDonald, on March 8, 2004.
Yes, I'm talking about the Todd Bertuzzi incident.
