Posted in: Abe offers sympathy, help to S Korea over ferry disaster See in context

This ferry was previously one of the A-line fleet that is based in Amami Oshima. Strangely enough one of their similar type ferries over-turned a few years died but the accident was blamed on poor loading and waves hitting it side on. Maybe a design issue?

He had a lot of courage when up against those gun nuts. I think his heart is in the right place on so many issues, but his style did not suit the US audience it seems.

Sad to see Plushenko go out like this, he was so brilliant in his prime. He has given Hanyu a lot of support apparently, so now we true have a changing of the guard. Hanyu was brilliant in the short. I hope he goes all the way and gets the gold!

This is the dimwit who as PM refused to stop his golf round when the Ehime-Maru tragedy happened. As for his involvement in sport, his biggest claim to fame is that he played university rugby, a very long time ago.

We need more of them in this country. Japan needs to get over its aversion to adoption too. Sam Watters thank you for sharing your story, my two big brothers are adopted too, and I love them so much.

Mori was one of the worst Prime Ministers ever, now that is a big achievement. What skills does he have to act in this capacity? NONE. Japanese cronyism at its worst.

Magnet 10 years in Bali jail would be worse than 20 in an Australian one. She has not got off lightly and is still on parole. I dont see her making millions somehow.
