    He surely lives in a different financial world than I do. I've dropped a few thousand yen in loose change in the Red Cross boxes the past week. Wish he were back doing the news.

    I hope this sets an example to follow.

    Not meaning to criticize anyone here, I quote a proverb:

    He who gives little gives from his heart; he who gives much gives from his wealth.

    A man gives 200 millions yen. Two men steal 10,000 yen. What a contrast!

    Kume! Still alive! I remember when he anchored the 10pm Asahi TV News and his hair was black! Good on him for doing this.
