Governement Rethinking Radiation Levels after Parents Protest

I am glad to see that the Japanese gov. has changed their minds about the insane idea to raise radiation safety levels for kids.

Parent anger plays role in Japan's reversal of raised radiation limits at school

from an outraged parent involved in a hearing on the matter

In the playground, in the sandbox, children put dirt into their mouths! They breathe in the dust! You should do the same! Lick the dirt!" she shouted to applause. "You wouldn't do this to your own kids!
It was incredibly crazy that the government raised the level by 20X in the first place. Glad to see they were bullied into changing their stance. I wonder if our government would be any better. I somehow doubt it.
