In light of the hideous act and loss of trust in which 3 small children drowned while the drunk civil servant coward sped away, I think the mayor's intentions are understandable. I would suggest he lead by example however and say "I will not drink for the month of May, and urge all my staff to do so as well."

My immediate take away from this using my pea brain is that I, as a fan, have a chance with these hot girls. That is enough to make me buy their merchandise. I see this as good for revenue.

I would hate to have that on my conscience for the rest of my life, didn't slow down to lose 10 seconds and killed a young girl. When driving always err on the side of caution, and it is the driver's fault and responsibility to anticipate erratic movement of children especially.

I have 3 kids and would like a big place with a lawn and relaxing lifestyle, but what would I do? Write a novel,,, start a small eikaiwa or coffee shop,,, organic farming. Sounds good but maybe after retirement.
Also, do they advertise these programs?

Habits I got in Japan:
picking nose anywhere
letting door slam on those coming behind me without a care in the world
farting on trains in someone's face
hawking and spitting in the sink
getting red faced drunk anywhere and everywhere
eating obnoxiously loudly

@Jerseyboy: "Unfortunately, the Japanese zombies just keep going further and further in the whole, tying up capital that should be going to start-up and/or growth companies."
Your points are well taken however interest rates in the US and Japan are at record lows, but noone wants a loan, that is the problem.
In addition, the fact that Citibank, GM and others have revived their oligopoly or whatever the heck you want to call it, means that the startups that you mentioned have all been crushed anew by these obese giants and innovation in such industries is now even farther off.
