The charity angle is a great idea. But, I imagine people would pay more for her to stop singing.

I went to Kyoto once, but did not see the protocol. It was not marked on any of the tourist maps.

I am so tired of reading reports just like this one in JT. Ok, I don't live in a 13th floor apartment, and I don't have a 3 yo child. But surely a couple of metres of chicken wire (that's what we call it in OZ) would be cheap solution for preventing these tragedies.

The boar got away. Really? There can only be one conclusion...it was a cabbage loving midget dressed as a boar, who quickly changed costumes, thus escaping detection. I should apply for a job with the Japanese police.
