Within a 5 minute walk from Odakyu Sagami Ono station you'll find these bakeries offering a wide range of delicious breads that are baked on the premises.

These are just my favorites. There are several others throughout the neighborhood.

Posted in: Kisenosato formally promoted to yokozuna See in context

In the last bout between Kisenosato and Hakuho, Hakuho's performance was subpar. His initial move was like that of a sprinter - body leaning forward, knees and feet facing forward. This is a legitimate sumo tactic if you takeout your opponent with the initial thrust. If not, as the big strong Kisenosato did not fall, you must quickly adjust. Hakuho could have spread his knees futher apart, lowering his hips - feet pointing outward assuming a more defensive posture. But he continued thrusting towards the edge - his feet slipping from under him even before he falls. Gave me the impression that he was simply 'spinning his wheels' waiting for Kisenosato to simply slip to the right for the easy win. I had been looking forward to this bout - expecting something comparable to bouts between Takanohana and Akebono. Could be wrong or am I expecting too much?

So how is it? If the driver kills a relative, it's an accident. But if he kills a stranger it's a crime.

Will this grandfather be arrested or is it a crime only when the victim is not a relative? If I were to cause the death of a young girl, relative or not, emotionally I suffer just as much.

I had hoped that this would end things. But given the press conference, it seems very likely, that she indicted him based not on evidence, but rather for political reasons.

Here are some facts that have nothing to do with politics:

Zimmerman carried a weapon in the capacity of a neighborhood watch.

He made self incriminating statements when talking to the dispatcher.

He ignored the dispatcher's advice not to follow the suspicious person.

He initiated a confrontation.

He shot the person that he decided to confront.

Martin's side of the story will never be heard.

Most people will say and/or do what ever possible to avoid going to jail.

Umm, no, no he didn't. Martin didn't deserve to be killed, and Zimmerman didn't deserve to be beaten up either. The question is, did Zimmerman fear for his life, if he did, then regardless, he was justified

Umm, what about Martin's life?? Is it possible that he was in fear of being harmed by a stranger followinig him? If he was in fear, then regardless, he was justified in defending himself, standing his ground (beating up Zimmerman). Who would not be in fear of being followed by stanger on a dark American street?

We know that in a great many of those cases the one who does not survive is painted by friends and family as a good person who needlessly lost their life.

Even if Martin was the scum of the earth, he did not deserve to be shot by Zimmerman. Because of the actions of Zimmerman, Martin needlessly lost his life.

They by inference seem to be saying that the other party in the engagement should have taken a beating, raping, robbery and hoped the assailant would allow them to live and retain all their mobility and faculties.

Zimmerman deserved any beating that was inflicted on him. He put Martin in a threateniing situation by following him on a dark American street. Martin didn't know his intentions. I'm sure he was afraid for his life before Zimmerman even got out of his car. Didn't Martin have the right to stand his ground?

And somehow when you are being attacked, raped, or robbed, you are supposed to do an age check on the assailant too. If he/she is 19 then the rules are different than 17.

If Zimmerman would have followed the dispatcher's advice, there would have been no need to check Martin's age. He had no authority to ask any question of Martin. And I think duriing the trial Martin will be judged to have been the victim and Zimmerman the assailant.

warallthetime, I wasn't there so I don't know how much of a bashing was being inflicted. But if Zimmerman's side of the story is correct, should he have carried a firearm while patrolling? If Zimmerman's side of the story is correct, should he have ignored the police dispatcher's advice not to follow the suspicious person?

My opinion about these two facts is that Zimmerman wanted and planned to have a confrontation. He carried his weapon in preparation. He knew, just as is stated in his side of the story, that he would not have stood a chance without it. If he would have followed the dispatcher's advice, his plans would have been spoiled.
