On Saturday, a woman in Kashiwa was hospitalized after being attacked by a man with a metal bar, and now this. Perhaps those cops patrolling the area and warning people, as mentioned by Sherman, aren't so stupid after all.

Who cares who owns it? BTW, you don't "climb" Fuji, you walk up it. And a pleasant walk it was both times I did it -- a bit nasty on the legs coming down, however.

mjh875k. OK, Rodman is a disgrace to his nation, but one reason that that nation is great is that it doesn't exile people, or worse -- even Nixon didn't murder his uncle! Not only doesn't Rodman know the first thing about diplomacy, he doesn't appear to know the first thing about sobriety or even humanity. Please let the tattooed twit have his 15 minutes, as he'll soon be forgotten.

Isn't anyone in Japan going to mention that this was a free transfer for a 27-year-old nearing the end of his career -- not a brilliant chance for a youngster?

This move is a free transfer from Moscow's CSKA (which he joined in 2010), after starting at Grampus Eight and then transferring to the Dutch team VVV Venlo in 2008. At 27, he has definitely reached his sell-by date, and, in fact, may soon be off the shelves.

"Kuzo thought Kentucky Fried Fish matched up to English fish and chips quite smashingly"
I hope Kuzo has tried real fish and chips in Britain, rather than the noxious substitutes in so-called British pubs in Japan, because the description he gives of them here doesn't sound at all like the real thing. I doubt that KFC could actually make a tasty version of anything if their chicken is anything to go by.
