Regarding the June 29 article “Elderly volunteers to help Fukushima nuclear cleanup“: It’s good that Japan is using the elderly to clean up the radioactive disaster at Fukushima. It might also consider using the mentally disabled, prisoners and orphaned children to clean up Fukushima.

We are receiving radioactive fallout here in Oregon because of the criminal behavior in Japan. This should be a cause for war between our two nations. Japan should be required to pay the United States heavy financial reparations for the radioactive fallout it has sent to us.
