Japanese news reports that she may have gone to see a guy who lived in the same apartment as the accused. This guy had lots of cats and she used to often go and play with them. the accused is also thought to have gotten a cat from this guy. maybe that's how they met. anyway, i don't know how or why her parents let her go out on her own.

Evelyn Waugh did not create the Jeeves and Wooster characters; P.G Wodehouse did.

@smithinjapan: no need to punish the shop unless you can prove they plied him with drinks knowing he was going to drive after.

Shops don't ask every customer who walks in if they are driving; no one likes to be asked that. shops need customers for their survival; they can't alienate them with impractical rules. in the US, I don't know of one person who likes being asked for an ID evey time they want to buy alcohol. And when shop staff do refuse to give free parking coupons to customers who have been drinking, the customers often tell lies like their friend who is outside will drive, or the daiko service will take the car out, etc.

You can't expect shops to police people; you have the legal system and the cops for that, and even they are doing a bang up job. shutting down the shop is not going to solve a problem that has existed since the invention of the motor vehicle, and that is pervasive all over the world.

Would you shut down the manufacturer of the car which caused this death? or the beverage company which made the liquor he drank that ultimately caused the accident?

aren't all phones usually "handy-sized"? Or should men have to carry suitcase-sized ones? and why should women's phones focus on easy usage and communication quality? what are they implying?

why did they need to put rum in it? whatever happened to fruit? or will they keep it in the chu-hi section at supermarkets?

and how do you use "a lot of cream, with less fat"?

Nor could I expect any court-ordered visitation, as no provision for this exists under Japanese law.

Are you sure about this. I do know for a fact that the Tokyo Family Court (or any city's family court) does have provisions for court-ordered visitations. They even have a beige colored pamphlet on the guidelines for that. Please contact the Tokyo Family Court in Kasumigaseki about it.
