Posted in: Author Murakami to give rare public speech in Japan See in context

I have read two of his books and didn't like them, I'm still wondering what the fuss over the author is, the are many better writers that don't get the recognition this one dose. I guess it's the lack of Japanese writers than can produce more than manga and 100 pages.

Posted in: Easter Island statue to give hope to tsunami-hit town See in context

Seems a strange gift, such a thing from an extinct race of people long gone leaving only stone monuments that no one is quite sure how they were built on a deserted island that suffered environmental disaster that probably forcing the population to fight and starve to death and evacuate or migrate. VERY STRANGE.

By injuring someone gives authorities a reason to take him off the street as a danger to society, while smoking Js or knocking off stuff is not a threat to life. I can see his resoning. When The education and societal system develops its citizens to become dependant on it, when a few people can not fit in such a system the choices become limited by there interlect or circumstance.

As Flalsflastaf - the onlo losers will be the small growers and manufactured. This serves big business, global corporate culture and destroys individuals creating a monoculture of goods and products. Tarris serve to protect culture as well as industries. If there was t a buck in it for politicians then this discussion wold not be happening.

At least the public is informed, perhaps next time with a preventative would be better PR.

Posted in: Masked wrestler city councilman forbidden to wear mask during sessions See in context

As much as I hate that stupid pro wrestling I must give my consent to him wearing a mask, if a woman can wear make up in chambers to change her appearance then all is fair, there is no issue of exposure or modesty so what's the problem. I don't know how politicians keep a strait face any way, but that's another matter.

Some days it feels like yesterday,and some it feels so long ago, and because the of no pysical evidence in Tokyo on other days it feels like it never happend. I guess some politicians have a simmilar feeling to the latter, or have no vested interest in the outcome.
