Worried About Nuclear Radiation?

Ray Hearn, a foreigner who owns an independent music label and concert promotion company (Beat Ink) recently just sent me this great chart demonstrating radiation levels & why he didn't run away: he bothered to get informed.

You know Mike, every comment you make about a foreigner "shitting" his pants would hold a lot more weight if you weren't posting your friend's resumes around and close blogging buddies with an executive search firm.

All this just makes you come off like a douche with an agenda. Tone it down a bit.

Thanks Anonymous,

Thanks for the advice. I come off as a douche bag with an agenda? Because I am friends with a guy who runs an Exec Search company? And I post "my friend's" resume.
1) I don't know about you, but I choose my friends by strength of their character, not by their job title.
2) I didn't post anyone's resume. Where did I do that?
3) This blog is mine, not yours. I can do what I want. If you want to read junk that has no opinion, then you are in the wrong place, my friend.
4) I own my own company, and have, since 1992... What agenda?
I will duly note your "advice" (rationalize for your actions) I will stop kicking people who panicked and left. I have taken them to task already many times. The chickens are coming home to roost without my comments.

Oh and, PS: "Douchebag"?... Hmm, Okay. Been called much worse many times. If the shoes fits... I guess I gotta wear it.

If it matters, I didn't think it was douchebag behavior, not by a long shot.

Also, future managers (or any leaders) could learn something from this.

Since your blog is about marketing, here's a link on the future of the solar power industry (and by inference, the fate of the nuclear power industry) by a guy who runs the numbers at the Scientific American blog:

hi Mike, do you maybe know the current status of the radiation in the water? I will go to Japan very soon. Is it safe for taking a bath? Do you have any idea if boiling the water will reduce the radiation? I am worried about the kids.. Thx
