Honestly, I just don't see it. The only thought in my mind is, why? But, then, I've never liked tororo, as it's flavorless and really adds nothing to a meal. Oh, and as for people who do see "something".....it would seem they are only seeing what they want to see.

Posted in: Is the JET Program really necessary for Japan? See in context

As a former JET, Tottori 95-97, and as a current professor of EFL, I long came to the conclusion the JET program should be, and perhaps now is, mor selective about who they hire. That is to say, rather than hiring mostly people who look at the program as a lark for a few years before moving onto better things.

I've got an idea, since Ishihara was so eaisily able to raise money for those islands he wants to buy, why not put him in charge of raising enough money to get Japan out of debt! ;)
