Subject: [ RadSafe ] Workers enter Japan nuclear reactor building

Good to read that the workers are progressing into the reactor building to repair and/or install ventilation.  The reporting actually seems a little better in this AP News article.  AP used proper units and even related the
250 mSv emergency dose limit to an acute dose level where radiation sickness is likely to occur, i.e. 1000 mSv.

I wonder if the reporters are learning the proper units and language.or are they finding the right people to interview.
