In Honor of Kim Jong-Il

In honor of the fine North Korean dictator's recent test of a nuclear bomb, I thought I'd post a couple photos from our weekend trip to Hiroshima. Nice timing, Kim-san. Actually visiting this place makes the whole nuclear thing just a little bit more real - and a lot more scary. This is a photo looking up at the A-Bomb Dome, preserved as a witness against nuclear arms. It had a copper dome on top, which melted instantly - and no wonder, with surface temperatures reaching 5000 degrees Celsius. Everyone in this building was killed. Posted by Picasa
