Last Saturday, I attended an anti-nuclear rally in Tokyo, and wrote about my experience. Gina Misiroglu of Redroom helped me place the story in The Huffington Post--a huge thanks to Gina and Huntington Sharp for this amazing opportunity to share my experience.

Japan is probably the only country in the world to apologize for its nuclear accidents, which were, for all intents and purposes, a result of an act of nature (mixed with very bad planning, negligence and hubris).
