I don't think that I would like to have lived next door to this poor guy, lets face it the smell from the decomposing body must have been over powering, especially if the old guy had died in the summer! I hope now that his farther will get a decent burial.

Abe san is moving Japan forward and certainly in the right direction, saying sorry for the war time attics and aggression is a step in the right direction, but he also needs to step up to the plate and address the issue of comfort woman, and the issues between China and Japan need to be addressed.

My late wife had breast screening done when she was in her 30,s, the reason for this there was a long history of cancer in her family, so, is it not the case that any breast screening is better than non, and if 3D is better why not, especially if there is a track record in families where it is prevalent. is it not better to be safe than sorry although there are misdiagnosed patients, i don't suppose nothing is 100% certain, but technology is getting better and better.

I would think that not all of these items have a high price value, but what they represent as a small piece of history is invaluable and it would be hard to put a price on them, I would like to think that they could be put on display in a history museum so that 1000,s of people can look, appreciate, reflect over these items. in these time where money is king, Mr Rago did the right thing in declining to sell them.

Uuuum, If this cop is found guilty, I would not fancy his chances in prison. there was a notice on Facebook that the local police in the USA were/are trying to in force a "non filming of police men on duty". i wonder why this is?.

Above this comment there are so many deep and passionate statements, and rightly so, all I would like to say is if I ever have the chance to meet Hiroshi Harada although I am British I would still have to bow very low out of respect, although my Japanese is rubbish, I think that you would not need a translator, as my actions hopefully would say it all.

Ive just looked at one link that was posted on this web site, it looks like the poles are ok but I would say that the foundations have been uprooted, either way it was fixed in double quick time, unlike the UK they would probably have ignored it, as the problem will go away then, there would be an accident, then there would have been an inquiry costing millions of tax payer money.

If the predictions of impending dome are correct, we will find out in a few days or weeks, hopefully it does not happen, but if it does will the scientists start looking into this theory that they can detect seismic activity?

I would say driving a car directly at two children and an adult, and then assaulting the adult, I hope he gets charged with three attempted murders and assault, time for jail me thinks.

There is one thing that every body has over looked, how do you get access to climb these towers? surely they are locked, or if there is a ladder on the out side there should be some sort of prevention so that they/you can get access."
