They argue it's important to have students view athletes with disabilities, which could change attitudes in a relatively conservative society like Japan.

Can’t argue with that lofty sentiment …. but why can’t the students watch it on tv?

What a mixed message … on the one hand schools are closing and on the other they are sending these students to watch sports.

Bizarre … and Bach this doesn’t improve your already tarnished image.

Toshiro Muto, the CEO of the organizing committee, said many sponsors, federation officials and others would be considered to be “organizers” and thus would be allowed to attend venues. He said some might occupy public seating, but he said he did not know “the numerical details.”

But he did not know the numerical details”

Muto mate it’s your JOB TO KNOW this. Unbelievable!

... Tokyo official said. "It is important to connect the flame, and we would like to have the event finish with smiles on people's faces.

Oh dear, saccharine smiles don’t really cut it in these pandemic days. Makes me want to puke when I read drivel like this which is probably not the intended reaction.

Mobile vaccination clinics available throughout Hawaii over Memorial Day weekend......Can we try this?

Sounds like a good idea...let's set up " expert panel" and have a series of meetings over the next 6 month. Will release a report with recommendations as early as January 2022

Oh yes ... you nailed the “ early as ... (distant future) infuriating line!

When you put a Finance Minister rather than a Health Minister in charge of the pandemic response, it shows the priorities of the Government. What more needs to be said?
