Stop allowing distorted pronunciation in the classroom PERIOD!

Natve English speakers unfamiliar with Japan cannot understand it. It’s useless, it’s not English, it’s another branch of the Japanese language.

The ones I remember in south Texas were sweet. While a lot of Japanese fruits really are better here, the watermelons, not THAT much. Especially considering the price difference. Used to buy big full sized for a dollar or two twenty years ago. It’s hard to imagine they’d be more than five dollars today.

I am so sad, and angry about so many things happening in America these days. But I am so grateful, and relieved that I left that country 20 years ago. Hopefully things can start to turn this November.

Sad day. I wish he’d of slipped in the kitchen and hit his head instead of this dang corona.

He’s with good ole brother Doug now. I’ll bet it was a feelin’ when his soul went through the ceilin’. Now he’s sippin vodka and ginger ale and smoking a cigarette that’s 9 miles long.

I Love you John
