We don't really know HOW this commentary piece got into the New York magazine, so best to wait before we crticize. It was not a PR stunt that is for sure. Most likely, the editors at the New Yorker, all Harvard grads who know Boston well, and who have published HM's short stories in the New York for a long long time, ASKED him by reaching out to him if he, as a Japanese who ran the Boston M a few years, 6 in all, had anything he might want to say. So it was a commissioned piece, not something he wrote and tried to place there as a PR stunt. He meant well.

Andrew could you clear this up: is LAMEN to be spelled in English and spoken in English as LAMEN or the wrong way of RAMEN? In fact, the Chinese who coined the term say LA-MIEN or LAMEN. And the Japanese also SAY LAMEN. so why is is spelled RAMEN. Do they call LONDON as RONDON?
also: what about HANDERU for steering wheel and ATAMA CONGREE for stupid and ATAMA SHORTO for crazy?
In Taiwan a concrete delivery truck that turns in circles on top is called NAMA KON, fresh concrete!
