Question people at that age being allowed to drive anything besides a wheelchair.Their faculties are in decline and sugar-coating it won't restore the diminishing marginal returns of age anyway.

He was probably just following orders and quietly took the fall,landing a Japanese version of amakudari somewhere back home.He's set,but the wrongs still will continue.

I got stung in my neck by a bee when I was 12.To this day,whenever I see one,I still get edgy.

You don't need to be a mental heavyweight to understand that the dipstick was equating the player's skin color with bananas AND not with nationality.Duh!

I remember listening to the cricket in my grandad's room when England toured Australia way back when.Sitting in a pitch black room,no talking,but in harmony to the ball by ball by Henry Blofeld.And then he later telling me to get back to my room before my gran saw me!! Beautiful days.
Posted in: Are you old enough to remember a time when there were no cell phones, no email, no Internet and no way to keep you connected to the world 24 hours a day? If so, do you sometimes think back on that time fondly?

The way even men walking around with an umbrella to block the sun,shows they are.What's worse,even on cloudy days,

Abe's learning not to aggravate his neighbors or is it because Abenomics isn't working and his political capital is running dry?

Everyone has mental anguish to some degree or another.But being famous on top of that,exacerbates it tenfold.And
in order to cope with the pressures of fame,temptations and pressures to continue being successful,often leads to the turning to the usual suspects of drugs.

The mistake was dragging out the tax hikes in installments.If they'd done it in one jump from 5 to 10%,there'd be only
wailing and gnashing of teeth once.What's that saying about death and taxes? Nothing in this world comes for free
and a rising cost of living is a part of life.

It's sad when anyone feels to end it all is the best option.I feel for the family left behind who will be second guessing
what ifs for the rest of their lives.But in reality if someone is that way inclined,there's nothing you can really do.R.I.P.

But LCCs with their add-ons are annoying.A charge for this,that and that.It's bad enough dealing with the rip-off surcharges/taxes, without the nickel and diming to get to your destination in relative comfort.

His ratings are dropping because he's trying to push things through quickly and that is unJapanese.If the economy was really showing credible,fruitful growth he could get away with his actions.But his three arrows are all blunted and going nowhere.And this week's economic news saying Japan's flirting with another recession,does not bode well.
If he doesn't watch it he could become the first sitting PM to be replaced though he has no legitimate threat in his own party or in the opposition.
