    Colbert is just not that funny. His humor is based on his viewers wanting to think that the views they hold are superior to those he mocks, especially the lower-class less sophisticated. There is not an iota of self-deprecation. Does anyone really laugh at his "jokes"? I predict CBS will be looking for new host within 2 years.

    I don't think higher resolution necessarily makes for a better experience for the viewer. For example, I just watched the Godfather series on Blu-Ray and found that the clarity made it clear that the scenes were filmed on sound stages. The clarity made the suspension of disbelief too difficult to get absorbed in the story.

    The only way I've found to get relief from bad hay fever in places like Tokyo is three pronged - one is an oral antihistamine like Allegra (generic Fexofenadine), a nasal spray like Flonase (generic Fluticasone), and antihistamine eye drops like Opcon-A. With those in action, you can enjoy life during this beautiful season.

    Colbert's biggest transgression is being unfunny. If Snyder had named a foundation with the Redskins name, then Colbert might have had something. Instead he couldn't resist the urge to Twitter out despite the lack of a point to the "humor".

    The service is too slow at Mos Burger and the product just isn't good enough to wait that long for. Overpriced as well.

    I suppose that the purported hijackers wouldn't be able to put the plane back in the air as the engines would begin pinging again.

    They may not care about the engines pinging once they load whatever they have onto the plane and force a country to either shoot down the airplane or deal with an even more unimaginable horror.

    Still strange to think that Ronnie Wood is not officially a member of the band, and instead is still paid on a contract basis after all these years!

    The American troops would just be replaced by Japanese troops. Okinawa has a strategic location so the void will be quickly filled.

    He was the crappiest in a string of crappy Prime Ministers in the 90's and apparently does not feel the need to change his reputation. .

    This quote is taken out of context from the NY Times article it came from. The article discussed the general movement of airlines away from four engine aircraft to two engine aircraft. The article discusses how the Airbus A380 has also been negatively affected by the switch. The 747 still has a decent future in cargo hauling and lasted far longer in passenger traffic than anyone ever expected. The airlines are just now looking for more frequent routes with less passengers.

    Samuel L. Jackson does lots of TV commercials, so it is no surprise that someone would get which ones mixed up. I saw the full video of the "outburst" and it is clear that Jackson was really just joking around with the flustered entertainment reporter "busting his balls". The main point of Jackson's barbs was the fact that it was an entertainment reporter, who is supposed to know everything about celebrities. That is what made is humor worthy. If the mistake had come from a regular reporter, it would not have meant anything.

    A contract was awarded last year to Accenture to build a biometric information sharing system between the United States, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Canada and Australia. Including Japan is just an extension.

    Suzu1: Write place of Fed Minimum Security prison> Fed Prisons were designed to dump Fed. criminals.

    Toshiko, you can go to the federal Bureau of Prisons website and query all federal prison locations by security type (minimum security, low security, medium security, high security or administrative security). White collar criminals with no history of violence will be sent to a minimum security facility. For example, Martha Stewart served her time at Alderson Federal Prison Camp (FPC) in Alderson, West Virginia It looks more like a boarding school than a prison.

    @Suzu1 Well that just shows that as well connected as they may have been, they still are not as well connected as the banksters. Not even a handslap for the banksters

    Since 2008, the Office of the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program has pursued criminal charges against 107 senior bank officers, most of whom have been sentenced to prison. For example, Catherine Kissick, a former senior vice president at Alabama-based Colonial Bank, 8 years in federal prison. Edward J. Woodard, CEO of Bank of the Commonwealth, 23 years in federal prison. Mark Conner, president of FirstCity Bank, 12 years in federal prison. Just because it isn't covered in Japan Today doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

    Over the past few years? No, but it is far better than it was 25 years ago.

    I guess two brothers were not well connected enough to the US power structure.

    What are you talking about? Bernie Ebbers at WorldCom was extremely well-connected and he was sentenced to 25 years in federal prison. Jeff Skilling at Enron well connected, 24 years in federal prison. Dennis Kozlowski at Tyco, well connected, 8 1/2 to 25 years in state prison. John Rigas at Adelphia, well connected, 25 years in federal prison. The list goes on and on.

    They will be packed with murders in these prison. The jails are maximum security as they pack federal offenders such as Chicao Mafiosos and snitches together in their jails....They will do hard labor while they are incarcerated,

    No, they won't be serving their time with murderers. They will be assigned to one of the minimum security prisons in the federal system. There is no hard labor. They will more likely spend their time learning a craft or taking classes.

    It is very sad, but appears to be the demented actions of a jilted lover. This happened at an American mall but could have happened anywhere. And murder-suicides do happen other places as well, just with less media coverage than the U.S. can provide.
