"Not a big Obama fan but if I just got off a 15 hour flight I wouldn't be hungry, I'd be beat down tired."
Heck, if he slept for half the flight, which is what I would have done, being in better than First Class and all, and didn't eat too much on the plane, and if he'd gone to a kaiten sushi and ordered what he wanted, he'd eat more than 20 pieces, and it wouldn't have cost the taxpayers as much.

"Jiro selects the dishes he serves and will not take orders from his customers."
Did Obama's Secret Service do any kind of background check on Jiro?

"Jiro is a master"
Heh, a master of overcharging people for sushi! 20 pieces of sushi for a minimum of Y30,000?!
Cripes, 20 pieces of sushi ( 10 plates ) at yer friendly neighborhood kaiten sushi costs as little as Y1,080 yen.

"Tracking data from the Maritime Ministry showed that the ferry made a sharp turn just before sending its first distress signal.
Some experts believe a tight turn could have dislodged the heavy cargo manifest—including more than 150 vehicles—and destabilised the vessel, causing it to list heavily and then capsize."
I just saw on NHK Newswatch 9 that the ship made two sharp turns just before the accident.
