"and due to Japan's recent tragedy, take on an added poignancy."

The tragedy is not recent, only the quake/tsunami part is. There is an ongoing crisis in the NE rescuing people & supplying evac centres (I hesitate to use the words humanitarian crisis in a developed country, but it's as close as you can get) combined with a very risky & dynamic situation at Fukushima Nuclear plant, and is a long way from being over.

Just because it's been downgraded by the Mainstream Media (who focused mainly on scaring people with nuclear disaster stories) to column 5 in order to make way for Libyan warporn does not mean it's over.

Ganbaru Japan!.
