Correction - "permanent," not" permanet." Looks like I'm getting spelling tips from the Donald.

Joeintokyo,

I asked a policeman your question once. He told me that they avoided arresting bosozoku because most of them eventuially quit the gangs, get married and go on to normal lives. This would not be possible if they had arrest records. It makes sense; in the United States, at least, there is permanet underclass of people forever burdened by records of offenses committed years before.

What's the point? The pleasure of coffee is the pleasure of coffee in a nice china cup and saucer as part of morning service at friendly coffee shop.

Posted in: Japan to pull out of IWC to resume commercial whaling See in context

The purpose of the IWC is to help the whaling business, not Greenpeace. Countries that have no stake in the whaling industry should not belong.

The minke species is not endangered; it is officially graded as "of least concern" in regard to species survival: the same rating as the Norwegian rat, the common cockroach and Homo sapiens.

The threats to the environment are real and deserve our full attention. By mixing boutique issues that are easily shown to be false yet are favored over more complex and serious issues by wealthy and unthreatened dillitantes, Greenpeace risks putting in doubt the reality of the crisis that our planet is facing.

What? Already fifty-one and only one child? Since, by her own statement, the function of women is to be brood sows for men, her life has not been very "productive," has it?

Surely, at her age, humanity will understand if the world's grandmother is indisposed with the flu or something during the creep's visit.

Posted in: Do business travelers feel safer using taxis or ride-sharing services? See in context

Either the headline needs changing or the chart needs an explanatory caption. The chart, as read, would be assumed to be an affirmative answer to the headline's rhetorical question and negate the information contained in the story.
