Just a quick note to remind you (as if you needed any reminding) that there is more than one crisis in Japan. The nuclear power plant emergency is a small part of the problems the country now faces. Here is a message from US ambassador Roos. The bigger problem involves thousands of displaced people whose houses and livelihoods and, sometimes, even families were swept away by a roiling ocean.
While the world watches Japan, it has taken its eyes off of Libya and Bahrain. Keep them in your thoughts as well.
