A good news/bad news dispatch from Japan:

The bad news: According to the Wall Street Journal, some 75,000 citizens who were forced to evacuate their communities in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear meltdowns won't be going home any time soon. The government's minister of the environment, Goshi Hosono, said recently that high levels of radiation will likely make their towns uninhabitable for another twenty years, at least.

The good news: Since the evacuated towns aren't being used by human beings at the moment, Hosono thinks they'll make ideal storage facilities for radioactive fuel rods.
