Hey, the guy is 80 years old! In 2020, he'd be 88 years old!
Maybe he isn't sure he'd survive that long?
Resigning now and leaving the position open for a younger candidate isn't being reckless, is it?
To me, it's a responsible act.

I hope Mt. Fuji and Kamakura get registered as World Heritage sites by UNESCO. They should be.

Muammar Qaddafi is a soldier. I believe he will fight to the end, and die fighting if he has to. He means it when he says he will never surrender.

No, but those aged 60 years and above should go through a medical examination to see if they're fit to drive, and those 65 years and above ought to repeat a driving test before being allowed to renew their licenses.

No, increasingly more accurate DNA evidence should be able to prove a murderer's guilt no matter how long it takes.

Allow representatives from other countries to which Japan exports foodstuffs to conduct tests for radioactive contaminants in Japanese foodstuffs jointly with Japanese authorities before these foodstuffs are exported from Japan.

At this point in time, in the wake of the triple disasters that have hit Japan [earthquake-cum-tsunami-cum-Daiichi], the people of Tokyo need a strong, decisive and experienced leader. Ishihara is just that.
A weak, indecisive and inexperienced leader during a crisis is a disaster in himself/herself. If I were a Tokyoite, I'd vote for Ishihara, too. It's comfort in familiarity as well, which helps when times are unpredictable.

I've been saying all along that robots ought to have been used at Daiichi, and I'm really glad that robots will be used now.
But, I, too, was under the impression that Japan is the leader in robotics, so what's with the U.S. sending robots to help at Daiichi?
