Looking at the daily news on Japan, now that I am back in Europe, there is nothing, whilst one reads about China, and other Asian countries, on a daily base. The world has lost its interest in the once admired and feared Japan.

It is pretty funny. One the phone with a friend overseas, I was asked, "is Egypt all over the news in Japan like it is in the US? What do they think of it?" LOL!!! I see more of Saito the slugger, and, for some reason, a morning variety show spent most of the morning discussing My Chemical Romance and Nick Carter. I don't get it. Poor head of the foreign correspondents association is right. Absolutely nothing is happening here and Japan has epically failed to make any difference in the world or even domestically over the past several years.

Combine this with poltiical apathy in young people, and you have a losing combination.
