I saw the Tsunami Watch this morning around 4 am for the entire East Coast of Japan to hit around 5:30 am. I thought to myself that everyone would definitely be sleeping at that time.

I didn't realize that people were being selfish on those reservations. Maybe I will start using some of those unoccupied tarps sitting there.

I really enjoyed watching him over the years, but recently it was painful watching him on dojo. He just didn't have any fighting spirit with all his injuries. I wish him the best of luck.

Too late, I already seen the prices of many things jumping at the first of this month. I thought they were charging me the new tax until I looked at some bill, and noticed it was a price hike. It gets higher next month again.

I believe this is the third article I read this year involving a police shooting at a fleeing vehicle, and each case there was an injured fellow police officer. Once again, if you use a vehicle as the weapon against the police in Japan, they will shoot you.

Not only that is a horrible accident for the victim, but also for the co-workers who witnessed the incident.

That accident has been a real mess all day today. I had some friends stuck down in Kawasaki for 2 hours. And that was late Sunday evening around 6 pm.

Wow that's very unfortunate, especially when it was probably the last trains scheduled to run at that time.
