Posted in: Missing 7-year-old boy left in mountains by parents as punishment See in context

Yes, there are boys that can drive you nuts on occasion and you can't help a feeling of disconnect at that moment, a feeling of not caring,of desiring an end to the tortures inflicted on the parent. Whether this applies here we may not know, but that blitz of letting go, of "terminal stage," it does exist.

If you have big time money your efforts will go at the same sort of scale into keeping it. Unless you're too daft.

Posted in: Tokyo zoo to work on changing living conditions for elephant See in context

I said it before. It's a scandal marching this poor animal for decades before kids and their thoughtless keepers. Down with all zoos. Or put and keep people in them. Then they may realize their cruelty.

I've never been to a restaurant alone. In 50 years. I'd feel weird and ogled. Couldn't enjoy one bite.

Posted in: Where are Japan's women leaders? See in context

First of all, where are the women workers? PTA, collecting and processing remarkably unproductive bell marks, chatting with the other women folks, lunching and encouraging the "necessity" of school volunteer work, the fun of it all, that 's the way to go here. Business leaders? Come on!

What she says and is perfectly correct with is that we are all the same. We should behave accordingly.

Posted in: Move sought for Japan's oldest elephant may be too late See in context

It's sad? Now? The poor thing has been tortured in that horrible concrete hole, to kids'applause, for 10, 20, 30,what, more years, and no one has raised a fuss. The zoo's administrators are animals, but only the worst and meanest kind. Shame on this zoo. Shame on all zoos, specially in this day and age. Shame on all the parents standing at the rail lauding their kids applauding the elephant. Kids dont't know better and their keepers are so obviously dumb.

SmithinJapan said it. Right on,we'll get a version of it. Deja vu even at our local school; if the incident can be buried (rinse!), let's do so. And not a thing changes.
