    For all those saying that "it's really bad that some pet cats are being killed but it's good for getting rid of all the strays" just remember that pets are members and beloved by many people and families. To many it's like losing a child.

    Either way, people shouldn't be putting poison out in the streets like that. Dogs and other animals can just as easily eat the poison.

    Doesn't have any game. "Tea Party"?? Threatens JHS girls for not coming to it. What a loser.

    The police seem to be an impediment to catching criminals rather than the other way around.

    He stole it so I say show his face. The dude stole something worth 250,000 yen.

    I think too much blame here is being thrown on the dad.

    I think a previous poster asked a good question.

    Why not use anesthesia? Then give a very lethal injection that would normally hurt but won't since the person would be under.

    Although it was just after a typhoon passed over, shouldn't all planes have been barred from taking off? Winds and rain were very heavy.

    Sorry a little off topic but KFC without mashed potatoes is like McDonald's without French fries. I have to agree with bass4funk.

    Bring in a few healthier items and I know parents who would take their kids to McDs. They often say the same refrain, "There's nothing healthy to eat there."

    Also, bring back the McRib. It was really popular ~ I don't know why they took it off the menu.

    I agree with this legislation. The reality is that many children in Bolivia work with no protection from the law since many are working illegally.

    The country is poor. Many children work due to the necessity of survival for themselves and their family. Just because it's illegal doesn't deter it.

    On a personal note, the specials that they keep coming out with look enticing but the prices they set for them are through the roof.

    The specialty burger I saw the other day had about a 498 yen price tag. It's more than I'm willing to pay. The sets run between 7-800 yen.

    I went with the apx. three hundred and fifty yen Quarter Pounder with Cheese. The price gap is too big.

    If it turns out that the Russian backed/supported/funded rebels are to blame then move the next World Cup out of Russia.

    I agree with the coach. Brazil has been awesome most of the time and all teams will lose occasionally, albeit this one was a heavy one. Scolari's done so well I don't think it should result with his head on a platter.

    No country is really trying to get info or back any of those kidnapped except > Japan.

    Japan has to do what it takes and if unilateral give-and-take is what's required then Japan should go for it.

    South Korea hasn't and won't lift a finger to help get them back. None of the other countries even want to have the kidnapping victims' plight put on the negotiating table (which is understandable).

    So far, the 6 Party Talks have had no success whatsoever against the NK missile tests.

    If North Korea produces no results in giving the Japanese back their people then the sanctions will go right back into effect. Japan should give it a shot.

    I agree with maxjapank. So much is lost in translation. Native to native communication is a lot deeper and can convey more detailed and nuanced instruction to one another.

    As an instructor, there have been so many times I've been able to get my message across smoothly and clearly to people in English by using English expressions, idioms, and analogies that only native speakers can understand.

    No matter how good my Japanese gets I've never been able to easily describe explicitly what it is I'm thinking or want them to do. It's understandable and the point is understood but it's not that deep.

    Try a Japanese coach, Japan.
