    I'd really like to see this become widespread and standard on all devices.

    The judicial system here should really make this a heavily punished crime. This not only endangers the lives of the people on the train but also anyone who may be near the tracks with high speed rock projectiles.

    18 years old should be old enough to know better and should spend time in jail or be fined heavily.

    Absolute about face and a big fat two-handed slap in the face to the populace. Him and his ilk promised structural reform.

    He's returning to his original platform of "beautifying Japan" and prettifying past right-wing thinking and state Shintoism. This is not what the voters want.

    He needs to follow through on all three of his arrows or this country will be (fill-in-the-blank here).

    The Cove was and The Interview will not be shown here. Now this Unbroken.

    I'm sorry but I've read of a few rare incidents of cannibalism by soldiers starving and dying on the islands, so i disagree with the shinto priest who claims that there was absolutely non during the war.

    I find this increasing whitewashing of history to be maddening.

    As far as censorship is concerned, I'm not seeing much of a difference between China and Japan when it comes to content that runs counter to their political agenda.

    Surfing down in Kochi. Some hot sake and sushi with the local cuties. Really.

    Not this non-sense again. When he stepped down the first time in 2007 I was so glad to see his "Beautiful Country" campaign go with him.

    Now he's going back to it and going to shove this down everyone's throats after this money wasting election.

    I really wish he'd follow through on his original promises of reform with his "3rd arrow" which seems like it will never see the light of day.

    Looking more like smoke and mirrors to cover for his push back to the extreme right.

    Well you don't 税.

    I'm glad they chose this. Although depressing, it was the straw that broke the economy's back and perhaps Abe's (at least for the present).

    I think what he was riding was a powered parachute. It has a little motor-fan which makes it a bit different from a paraglider.

    Rogen responded by promising to remove three of four burn marks on Kim's face, and reduce the "flaming hair" by 50%. But he said he could not meet all the demands.

    "The head explosion can't be more obscured than it is because we honestly feel that if it's any more obscured, you won't be able to tell it's exploding and the joke won't work," he said.

    This is such a beautiful quote.

    I see Sony has acquiesced to NKorea's threats. Weak.

    Ad blockers are a direct result of the obtrusive ways these ads keep popping up and it's getting worse. You reap what you sow.

    Give the people what they want and they will come. Not being able to read an article because the whole damn page is covered by some ad is not what I want.

    I wish JT would properly refer to her as "retiring", "moving on" or even "quitting".

    I know in Japanese they refer to this as "graduating" but I really wish they'd use the proper English terminology here since this is an >English< news source.

    For a about a seven period, Mahliki and the rest of the govt. sat on their asses.

    They bickered and showed uncompromising factionalism and never got their act together in order to lead their country while the US forces were fighting.

    Now that the US has pulled out they want more weapons and air power. They had it for a long period. They wasted the opportunity. They needed to and still need to get their act together.

    Let them build their white elephants.

    But if the bobsled/luge events were moved to Nagano that would be a substantial increase in cost to see those events for the SKoreans.

    It's a tough call. I'll leave it up to them.
