A Case of the Mondays

For anyone thinking they’ve had a bad week I picked up my copy of World Magazine and read the obituary of Tsutomu Yamaguchi.  He has the dubious distinction of having been bombed by not one, but both of the atomic bombs during World War II.

Turns out on August 6th he was in Hiroshima for a business trip when the 1st bomb was dropped.  I guess that prompted him to return home to Nagasaki where he got nailed with bomb #2 on August 9th.  He made it to the ripe age of 93 proving his apparent immunity to enormous amounts of radiation.

Hopefully Tsutomu has given us a nice relative scale by which this week will be stellar.
