    That is rather the point. The "Imperial" Household Agency has worked long and hard -- in their hidebound fashion -- to repair Japan's international image. And the Dutch Royals, as they are termed, have been receptive.

    Nothing to do with trade, I assure you...

    It depends.

    It depends on whether the money was "abandoned," "lost" or "mislaid."

    Abandoned property is something forsaken by a previous owner, who has no intention of returning for it. Lost property, like an engagement ring accidentally dropped in the street, is something that is inadvertently, unknowingly left behind. And mislaid property is intentionally put somewhere—like money on a bank counter that a customer intends to deposit—but then forgotten. Mislaid property...is supposed to be safeguarded by whoever owns the property where it was mislaid until someone with a better claim.

    In the state I live, California, there is a law mandating that any found property valued over $100 be turned over to police. Authorities must then wait 90 days, advertise the lost property for a week, and finally release it to the person who found it if no one could prove ownership.

    In a nutshell, Masako was hikikomori.

    Yes, the Reichsfuhrer is merely defending the volk.

    Yep. Hitler totally held periodic elections in Germany, and Israel invaded and occupied Egypt and Iran. And has gassed millions of Arabs.

    'Cause if it walks like a duck, and quack likes a duck, it must be hippopotamus.

    Via DOAK, the prosecution released the following in response to the reactions the past few days:

    JJabbari was investigated as a suspect because of the last call on the victim's cell phone. The police found a bloodied scarf, bloodied knife, and the original cover of the knife in Jabbari's place.

    Jabbari accepted that she had bought the knife 2 days before the incident

    Jabbari had sent a text message to a friend of hers three days before the incident saying "I think I will kill him tonight"

    Jabbari first claimed the involvement of a different man named "Sheikhi" in the incident. After she failed to identify the man, she said that her original statement was false and she had only tried to derail the investigation.

    The claims that Jabbari made in the final months (before the execution), were only a repetition of her previous claims that were investigated one-by-one and found baseless by the five judges of the criminal court of the province and the judges of the National Supreme Court. Despite this, the Prosecutor's Office tried its best to bring the two families together; the victim's family in the end insisted on not forgiving her.

    If true, then Jabbari's conviction would have stood in my country, the US.

    But plans to give the nationwide grid management body more control over the system of distribution and transmission lines were scaled back, amid lobbying from Japan’s power utilities.

    A noteworthy sentence, summarizing Japan's problem since 1985: narrow, out-dated interest groups hindering Japan's economic evolution and development.

    Only in America can an article about a shooting not mention, well, a gun.

    More defense of the indefensible: "It ain't porno, cause theyz not nekked!"

    Now, I'll type real slow, so y'all can get this:

    Picture the following image:

    A POV shot of a nine-year old girl in a bikini, on her knees in front of a man. The girl has a banana in her mouth, and some wiped cream on her lips and face.

    No one is naked. And its porn. With a child.

    If you understand that, then your argument that just 'cause no girl is naked on the junior idol site, that means it ain't porno, you are fool, or a liar, or scumbag.

    I'm talking about freedom of the press, and the data says, that Japan and the ROK are essentially the same on that count.

    Your focusing on this instance and this instance only is poor thinking. It is, in fact, the kind of poor thinking that leads to damn-the-data, full speed ahead nonsense so indicative of much of what is wrong in Japan.

    Stop following the headlines. Think for yourself.,

    Once again, we see the terrible Republican display of partisanship over patriotism. The skriech and gnash their teeth: TRAVEL BAN!!!!!!

    A travel ban wouldn't work since patients trying to get to the U.S. would simply fly to Paris, London, Frankfurt, or some other big city in Europe and then buy a ticket on a different airline to the U.S., (known as "broken travel") making it impossible to track them and inspect them at entry.

    But that is too difficult for most conservatives to understand.

    So the Republicans begin demanding it, making it a campaign issue, and Republican-oriented media push the idea that the President is asleep at the switch for all it is worth, even though a President Romney would undoubtedly have listened to the same experts and drawn the same conclusion. E

    For them, everything is about politics, all the time, even if doing so might kill more Americans.

    No honor. No shame.

    Yes, i have looked at the data, but that is beside the point and is irrelavent.

    Data is irrelevant. So, you form your beliefs on emotions and how you wish the world to be.

    Nice to know.

    Reporters w.out borders is a different group than the American based one you source.

    Regardless of the source, the salient point is simple:

    Japan and ROK have about the same ratings of free press. Both are heading towards less freedom of the press in the past five years.

    "...say goodbye to Nabokov's Lolita (which was in fact banned in many places not soon after it first appeared in print)"

    Ah, the old slippery slope fallacy.
