Posted in: Tanaka calls Ishihara 'reckless old man'; Gemba also critical See in context

Hey, the guy is 80 years old! In 2020, he'd be 88 years old!

Maybe he isn't sure he'd survive that long?

Resigning now and leaving the position open for a younger candidate isn't being reckless, is it?

To me, it's a responsible act.

I hope Mt. Fuji and Kamakura get registered as World Heritage sites by UNESCO. They should be.

Muammar Qaddafi is a soldier. I believe he will fight to the end, and die fighting if he has to. He means it when he says he will never surrender.

I used to watch "Gigantor" back in the '60s. It was fun.

Posted in: Do you think there should be a statute of limitations for murder cases? See in context

No, increasingly more accurate DNA evidence should be able to prove a murderer's guilt no matter how long it takes.

Posted in: What is the best way for the Japanese government and companies to assure overseas food importers that food products from Japan are safe despite the ongoing nuclear crisis? See in context

Allow representatives from other countries to which Japan exports foodstuffs to conduct tests for radioactive contaminants in Japanese foodstuffs jointly with Japanese authorities before these foodstuffs are exported from Japan.

Posted in: What do you think about Shintaro Ishihara's re-election for a 4th term as Tokyo governor? See in context

At this point in time, in the wake of the triple disasters that have hit Japan [earthquake-cum-tsunami-cum-Daiichi], the people of Tokyo need a strong, decisive and experienced leader. Ishihara is just that.

A weak, indecisive and inexperienced leader during a crisis is a disaster in himself/herself. If I were a Tokyoite, I'd vote for Ishihara, too. It's comfort in familiarity as well, which helps when times are unpredictable.

Posted in: U.S. sending robots to Japan to help with nuclear plant See in context

I've been saying all along that robots ought to have been used at Daiichi, and I'm really glad that robots will be used now.

But, I, too, was under the impression that Japan is the leader in robotics, so what's with the U.S. sending robots to help at Daiichi?
