Fukushima Leak

This is about the saddest photo I’ve ever seen. Here’s the caption:

In an image provided by Tokyo Electric Power Company, contaminated water from the crippled No. 2 reactor is seen leaking through a crack and draining into the ocean at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station in northern Japan on Saturday.

Topped off by the feeling of prison bars, I can’t believe what this does for the color pink.  (Along those lines, it also reminds me of this.)
