    You do NOT put metal into a microwave. What a stupid and dangerous thing to do. It is amazing that people have not destroyed their homes (at least their kitchens) doing this.

    But if Sony Corp. is selling defective units they need to do right by their customers.

    How do you put a price on what was STOLEN from him? He deserves at least $1,000,000 per year (yes U.S. Dollars). How very lucky he was not executed, this is one of those cases that show why the death penalty is wrong.

    I keep reading about "Traditional Japanese Whaling", so I went to Wikipedia and I found this information:

    Japan has since conducted research whaling programs in the North Pacific (JARPN 1994–1999, JARPN II 2000 – present) and in Antarctica (JARPA 1988–2005, JARPA II 2005 – present). The IWC has asked its members that conduct research whaling programs to demonstrate that the research provides critical information, that the research is needed for whale management purposes, and that non-lethal research techniques are not able to provide the same information. The IWC has issued at least 19 resolutions criticizing Japan for failing to meet these conditions and asking it to stop issuing permits. In 1994, at its 46th annual meeting, the IWC established the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary in a 23-1-8 vote. Commercial whaling is prohibited within the sanctuary boundaries. Only Japan voted in opposition. As the size of the IWC continued to grow, so did the influence of Japan within the commission. For example, many new Caribbean member nations voted in favor of whaling interests in 2000 including the defeat of a proposed South Pacific Whale Sanctuary. Additional support for whaling was gained in the Pacific, Africa and South-East Asia. As many of these nations received economic aid from Japan, accusations of vote buying were made by anti-whaling groups. In 2001, Japanese fisheries official Masayuki Komatsu stated Japan used overseas development aid as a tool to gain influence

    It would appear that other posters above me are correct about the apparent political corruption involved in Japan's whaling industry. But why do the good citizens of Japan allow their tax money to be used this way? And even the IWC has complained about the way Japan does it's "research."

    Might be a Christmas movie, but it is one of those flicks that you can watch any time of the year to feel good!

    Plus name anything by the late James Stewart that is not good.

    My second thought here:

    Captain Watson and his group are not going to change, they are going to continue after the whaling fleet "business as usual." Right or wrong we can all see which side the posters above will take on that.

    But I can see that if the U.S. court wants the whalers left alone, the court is going to have to convince the U.S. Navy to send resources down south to "protect" the whaling fleet. A move which would probably be politically unacceptable given the financial status of our two countries at the moment, as well as other reasons.

    One of the most precious rights of the U.S. Constitution is the right of the people to protest. The court is WRONG for trying to say that a group of people can not protest and to top it off that they can not protest in international territory where the court has no jurisdiction.

    As this continues through the progression of appeals it will have to be found an unconstitutional ruling.

    Tarantino, whose credits include “Pulp Fiction” and the “Kill Bill” volumes, said he was tired of defending his films each

    time the U.S. is shocked by gun violence. He said “tragedies happen” and blame should fall on those guilty of the

    crimes.

    Well said Mr. Tarantino!

    His prison time is 4 years, not enough for some one who is supposed to be a U.S. Marine. But there will be some additional justice, the U.S. now has that Adam Walsh thing and the Kettering Act and that SORNA stuff. I'm no attorney but said pervert will now be placed onto one of those U.S. sex offender registries for probably the next 25 years if not for the rest of his life, this will affect the kinds of jobs he is allowed to have, where he is allowed to live, most women will now have NOTHING to do with him, don't worry that 4 years punishment is just the start. He has correctly lost his veterans benefits. And for those mentioning "double-jeopardy" and perhaps ex-post facto, the SCOUS has ruled that the sex offender stuff is regulations and exempt from that stuff, so he will be forced to comply. I have even read where people like him are having to wear a GPS tracker for life now.

    He harmed Japan and disgraced his own country, he deserves everything he gets and more.

    What happened to Sir Asimov's laws? "A robot may not harm a human, or through inaction allow a human to come to harm." (more or less paraphrased).
