    Knowing how the Japanese court system works, it's irresponsible to call this a "landmark decision" without naming which court ruled on this. Because "study the verdict" usually means appeal to the next highest court, where it will more than likely be overturned. That said, the inclusion of the details about the pressure on Watanabe to drop the suit is telling.

    "They are tremendously well funded. This is beyond anything we have seen."

    Of course they are. Al-CIA-duh has the deepest pockets on the planet.

    Japan is an occupational safety inspector's worst nightmare. Just this week I saw workers grinding metal with no eye protection and another crew placing 5-meter-long iron girders wearing sneakers and construction tabi (i.e., no toe protection).

    Women not in the first world just don't have it tough enough, so let's open the door wider to an unnecessary social construct that turns them into baby factory machines for someone higher up the ladder. The year is 2014, and there are 7 billion of us. What is the actual need for this?

    You know, if Abe had sent nothing or even spent the day in bed with a reibou-induced cold, they still would have whined about something. Beijing and Seoul have been sharpening their talons for weeks getting ready for today. This is an internal matter, and the external meddling is not much appreciated.

    It's always seemed a little strange that there's no California burger...

    Well, there was a "California Burger" at McDonalds Japan, though nobody seemed to know why it was named so. It took me longer to type this comment than it did to find the Califonia Burger on Google.

    It's this clown's head, not the case, that needs to be re-examined. Hand him over to the parents.

    Phrasing: This device will not "prevent children from getting lost," but it will help in finding something that is lost, if used properly.

    Therefore, going by the Doraemon cannon...

    Editor, the correct word is "canon."

    Does anybody have the line score for Anraku's shutout effort yesterday? Why keep the kid on the mound when you're up 8-0 in a qualifying game?

    DisneySea had a water show last year where the entire point was to get soaked to the skin. They sell lots of cheap plastic raincoats and dry T-shirts to this crowd.

    Stopping Russians is exactly what is needed to prevent humanitarian crisis.

    Utter Nonsense! It's not Russia firing into the civilian population. But it's the ethnic Russians in eastern Ukraine who are suffering. I know this from a friend with a child who has been hunkering down for several days and two days ago said there was no food available. Kiev needs to implement and honor the cease-fire right now. That's what can stop this humanitarian crisis.

    There is a grave humanitarian crisis in Eastern Ukraine where innocent mothers and children are in hiding for their lives without any food. Japan used to care more about this.

    WHY do we have to read about this daily come summer?

    Exactly! Next will be a flash-flood tragedy involving families camping on a riverbed, followed by more people drowning in heavy surf, nearly all of which could have been avoided with an ounce of forethought. It happens every year, despite (or maybe because of) the incessant danger warnings about everything anywhere you go in Japan.

    We don't know exactly what the father said to the son, but it's an inescapable fact that the boy didn't heed the intended message. The father didn't explain it forcefully or thoroughly enough, and that's going to haunt him forever.

    It takes 20-25 minutes to walk the 2 kilometers the rapist "forced her to follow him." Which part of Tama was this? Because the satellite photos show an awful lot of homes there. And if these assaults have been going on since 2010, what have the cops been doing about it?

    Not a lot of meat on the plate here, JT. All "drugs" are "synthetic." And no, marijuana is not a "drug," it's a plant, with proven medicinal value. The usual method is to include facts in stories.

    Superb is not available on the Japan App Store, and it only covers Los Angeles at the moment, so I fail to understand why it's talked about here now.

    Is there just an overabundance of funds for stupid research these days? Wasn't it just month or two ago that another group of nitwit researchers thought that Twitter would reveal proof of aliens living among us?

    Throw some cash my way and I'll conduct a study about how not using Twitter has not affected my life.

    What utter nonsense! This is the sad state of journalism today, where a non-issue like this is played as news. This summit is about figuring out regional security, not Michelle. This was 10 minutes I'll never get back.
