It tasting good doesn't mean it is safe. We still don't know the long term effects of consumption on kids. And Of course their going to make good comments! Can't image them refusing it or saying "this taste great and I can't even taste any radiation in it. I can't wait to bring some home to my kids." Wonder if mr. Takeshita brought some home to his wife and kids.

A law enforcement officer knows what he is getting into when he/she signs up for it. As an former MP, I knew exactly what I was getting into by the end of training. It was my choice to pass or fail. If a cop suffers from mental sickness from a job related incident, they have psychiatrists on staff to deal with those matters. The flasher is a you know what but if this guy wins the case, it'll be open season for other cops to start suing suspects and criminals for the same reason. And Wow, as cops are paid with my taxes, and are able to buy a Rolex, then I guess I'm in the wrong job! Can't say I know any cops in the states that can afford a Rolex on a government salary.

If China is showing, what I would assume is only a tiny fraction of its military might, then I don't beleive it is only Japan China is trying to frighten. In addition, both Japan and China have pride and may continue to out do/show each other until a mistake is made ie.taking down a plane or sinking a boat or ship, then the sh** is going to hit the fan. I mean like really, how often does the US or UK have parades to show off it's military might? It's just a bully tactic that will only escalate tensions. Put both leaders in a closed room with boxing gloves for a few hours.

Major shift in interst? They mention he major increase in Asains coming to Japan but no mention of the decrease from native English speakers, which at one time was the majority. Will mean a shift from English schools to Chinese schools? Perhaps add Chinese to the curriculum?

There are plenty of jobs out there, may not be glorified work but I'm sure it'll put food on the table.

Of those 2+million, I'd like to know how many were given a flu vaccination. Can anyone direct me to a source? Just wondering if the vaccinations actually work. My last flu shot was early 1980s haven't even had a common cold since. And yes I do live in the heart of Tokyo,

So this is how the LDP wins. So Sunday's election is invalid? They will hold another election? Or the article has been posted, swept under the carpet and in 72 hours everyone will forget it.

Afraid they would be fired if they got caught with alcohol in their system. Now that's stupid! What do they think would happen if hundreds were killed because of alcohol in their system?

Of course LDP is going to take it. Can't believe this is even a topic of discussion. BTW, I've been here 33 years and don't need to be a psychic to know the future regarding politics in Japan.
