While what Palmer did was certainly reprehensible the whole government of Zimbabwe is far worse. The idea that Palmer could get a fair trial is laughable. That will stop the extradition.

No way I trust TEPCO. The Chernobyl experience puts paid to any assurances the government gives. Such a tragedy but I wouldn't go back either.

China could do something constructive like engaging in multi-country negotiations on the regions resource sharing but they just want to throw their weight around. China should adopt their own article nine and that would end the problem.

Democracy has nothing to do with scuffles and protests. It has to do with education and long term effort. Expose corruption and cronyism. Persist. Anybody who thinks that carrying a sign in the street is going to change anything is kidding themselves.

ah, vicodin is a serious problem, but "forgetting" you have a gun in your luggage - that's not so bad.

I don't see the Japanese economy, which exports a lot and doesn't rely so much on tourism; just the opposite of Greece. Now NY and Greece, sure....

I have to agree that taxpayers shouldn't have been forced to prop up the private equity groups that "invested" in Greek govt. bonds. If the punters want to take that kind of risk they should be left with the consequences, not the average guy just trying to make ends meet.

The euro can't survive without a single central bank and that's not going to happen any time soon, especially after this vote. But I'm not sure what the repercussions will be. It's going to be a tough day at work on Monday morning.

At least the girl is safe but yeah, you don't expect stuff like this in Japan. 20 years ago it was rare. At least I think it was. Maybe reporting is better. Unemployment is certainly higher. You really have to hope civility isn't breaking down.
