Verdict should be guilty with death sentence by slow exsanguination. He should feel the pain just like his poor victim did. RIP Arisa...

The voices told him to do it... He definitely has that psycho look.

Yep. Terrible disease I wouldn't wish on anyone. Ulcerative colitis sufferers are also at higher risk of colon cancer.

I attended the recent Tokyo Motor Show which was great! Although foreign brands like BMW and Mercedes were there, I was surprised that American makes like the new Chevy Camaro, Corvette and Cadillacs were absent.

Good on him! Gotta try it next time I'm in Japan. I Just went to a craft brewery in Otaru, Hokkaido which was really good. The young, male guide speaks fluent English and gave the tour in both English and Japanese.

Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate! It is a mantra preached by the military when we are in hot weather operations. My Japanese friend was surprised when she saw how much water I drank during this recent heat spell.

Yeah right Mr. Fu (Ling Yu). Weapons used for defense not for aggression towards other countries.

Perhaps they should string a cable at neck level with signs warning of no smartphone use while walking/riding across problem corridors. People paying attention can duck under, but those not will get clothes lined and learn their lesson.

Its about time Japan recognizes the importance of the child maintaining frequent and continuing contact with BOTH parents. The med/psych research shows it is best for the child's mental and emotional development/health. I hope domestic family court laws will follow too.

I think Saturdays would be better spent doing extracurricular activities (arts and athletics) or family time. Parents can send their kids to enrichment and/or remedial academics on Saturdays at their discretion. I think more emphasis should be placed on educating well-rounded, mentally and physically healthy individuals. It may even help decrease the high suicide rate among Japanese students. Just my $.02

BMW is the ultimate driving machine! (while it lasts). After the warranty is over, you need to trade it in or lease a new one. J-cars are more reliable, but no one can beat the fun to drive factor and utilility of a 4-5 passenger BMW sports sedan! (335 or M3)

I salute and thank these brave vets for their sacrifice and service. I had the pleasure of meeting some of these hero's (including Medal of Honor recipients) at a dedication ceremony/flight of a C-17 Globemaster jet that was named the "Spirit of Go For Broke" after their unit. We also displayed this jet at Yokota Air Base in the annual Japan-America Friendship Festival/Air Show. People waited 2-3 hours in the sweltering August heat to get a chance to sit in the cockpit. I was surprised very few Japanese know of the story of the 100th/442nd and their accomplishments.
