Monday/ at the grocery store

This picture is from the newspaper at the grocery store.   The gas mask makes for an otherworldly, other-creature look out of our collective nightmares, does it not?   And of course a gas mask can just filter out radio-active airborne particles.   It doesn’t really protect against the radiation itself .. or maybe some masks have a lead lining?   (I’m sure the picture is from Japan since we’re not under any threat of any possible radiation from the troubled reactor there).      The second picture is a happier one – of the kid running rice through his hands.   No harm done since the rice will be cooked, and if only it were as easy as that to get rid of contamination!
