Philip Brasor’s April 24 Media Mix column, “Decentralizing Tokyo may save the nation,” reminded me of the common saying that is such a cliche that it is embarrassing to note: “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.”

That Tokyo will be hit by a major earthquake is not in question. Hoping that the inevitable won’t happen is a dangerous pipe dream. A few eggs need a new nest.
