No, I'm sorry, misunderstood. I've not a clue where
"dork" came from. Good question for "suggestions".

Thank you for your concern.

I thought we had made it through the depression by the skin of our teeth but now the radiation will make the fish glow in the dark so they are easier to see.

Just one more reason nuclear power is not the answer to our energy needs or a solution to global warming.

It was a two-hour walk home, not as long as that endured by others, and all was in good shape when I got there.

By the way, the Online Etymology Dictionary says "dork" is from US student slang in 1967 (but I'm sure I remember using the word before then) and is thought to be an alteration of "dick" meaning penis.

Dork: makes sense. I think it was used in the 50's.
Hope things work for the better soon in Japan. It will
take time.
