Count me too a fan. In the years since, I've read accolades on how the plot was outstanding even when compared with great modern literature and film. I'm still left thinking, there was a plot? I thought I just had to go wack bad guys.

The U.S. requires this of teachers. The Praxis test measures competence in reading, writing, and math. When can we require politicians take this test?

"its nice but around it needs more towers and buildings." I agree. Something more (or more formal) for the recognition/remembrance of the Kobe earthquake would be appropriate.

This bugs me! Why are chopsticks and haiku ALWAYS the first topic when we Americans mention Japan? "Today we're learning about Japan, so let's begin with eating utensils and poetry." Really? "Today we're learning about Canada, we'll start with forks."

I disagree with most comments. She's a public official, ethically obligated to demonstrate good character. Her action was "workplace sexual harassment." I do like how she resigned. How nice would it be if all public officials who were caught doing something wrong would also quietly resign?
