But all-in-all these commemorations may pale, at least in imminence to this:
Japan raised the severity of its nuclear crisis to the highest level on Tuesday, putting it on a par with the world's worst nuclear disaster at Chernobyl in 1986 because of the amount of radiation released into the air and sea...
It had previously been put at a 5 rating, on a par with the 1979 Three Mile Island incident in the United States.
Well, at least they've stopped dumping radiation on the ocean. And that's about it for the good news.
