Whats terrible is that you will never see it. Atleast I have never seen child poverty in Japan.
Its obvious that the old oyagi based system is doing Japan a disfavor and with the severe government subsidized competition from Korea and China something radical has to happen soon...

A starving mascot would defy the concept of a mascot. Unless you were to somehow trivialize or cherish her sufferage

I guess the fervent nationalism that pulled Japan out of the dregs of WW2 is a rare commodity nowadays. I am conflicted with this report in that I know that japan needs to make the most extreme of efforts to stabilize the reactor and surrounding facilities and clean up the radioactive dirt and water but at the same time too is it worth a life of undocumented sicknesses and cancer like the Chernobyl liquidators suffered?
We should really cherish and honor the people that are on the front line of this disaster like the Americans are doing with the heros that reported to the 9-11 disaster scene

Actually the Japanese politicians were unaffected by the newspaper until they were prodded for a reaction from the press who was seeking a story out of this.

Do 2 year olds understand discipline? They probably do understand terror and pain and injury... Poor little girl. They should send this guy to a prison that doesn't look kindly on child murderers...

back in the 90's you'd pay for incoming outgoing, incoming texts, outgoing texts just for having a mobile phone.. I am sure there were other charges for other stuff. the internet wasn't even available hehe

I think our generation(s) is/are going the same route. We get so caught up with roadways and transit issues and we put off the whole retirement question right to the end. None of us would chose Alzheimer's... none of us would ever chose or prepare for any kind of dementia. But it seems that 'the greatest generation' didn't accept the fact that the requirements and the resources needed to care for the millions of sufferers everywhere also had to be a concern.
Even if we had care centers and hospitals just for dementia patients we would never be able to prepare for the one on one care needed for this kind of patient.
Not to mention that frail old ladies who care for their terribly ill husbands lose in court when the dementia patient wanders infront of a train or causes any other kind of damage.
We're going there too. We're losing sleep, we're susceptible but we aren't preparing anything..

Poor little girl.. I am sure this wasn't an isolated incident either... She must have been so scared up to her death. Execution would only relieve both parents of their guilt. They could escape in death peacefully.. Forcing them to listen to the cries of a little girl for the rest of their miserable lives would be a much better sentence...

I am sorry.. Even the surgically altered wig wearing McCartney needs to retire. He is too old for touring.. He is misinforming people about what they are getting with their ticket. It's not the Beatles, its not Wings, it's a tired old man who is trying to scrape a few last gold coins out of the golden goose. I feel sorry for him.

Sweeping your personal impressions and your feelings under the carpet does not benefit the country as a whole. Awareness of the suffering and the damage that has been done to such a beautiful part of the country is essential for healing.
Had the artist been an outsider attacking Japan or if the depiction was unrealistic then it would deserve some discourse. It is just a comic after all. Not a textbook in a classroom

I wish they had panicked in the 90's when it was obvious they were getting too comfortable with building stuff cheaper and less innovative. I worked as the AV guy for a major university and I was always surprised at how many problems we had with the sony stuff. They've been in a tailspin since then. That and Samsung and all the related companies are clogging the market with government subsidized technology that is attractive, innovative and dirt cheap. there is no comparison...
