I've never understood why any woman would consent to such photos. And any guy who pressures his girlfriend to pose for nude photos is certainly showing a lack of respect for her. Hardly conducive to a loving relationship.

I can imagine Abe - who also met Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Monday, thinking "This is not a good time for this meeting," while his trade and justice minister resign.

When I was growing up in Australia, we kids went everywhere by ourselves. Then there were some sensational unsolved murders and abductions of children (the Beaumont case in South Australia, the Mackay twins in Townsville, the Wanda Beach murders) and that seemed to change everything. The age of innocence vanished.
Posted in: Nowadays, for fear of child predators, it is no longer considered safe to let young children go by themselves to and from school, to a friend's house, play in parks or at the beach, go to shops and so on. Was it like this when you were young?

Are you seriously defending the right to possess child porn?

I've been there and the popovers are amazing. I've never seen bread made that way before. I found the menu a bit pricey, though. Guess, I'm on a Sizzler or Outback Steakhouse budget.

Crossword puzzle and the ability to cut out a story and file it away. I'll really miss newspapers if they disappear.

I didn't like avocados when I was younger but now I do, especially with tuna carpaccio, and tuna and avocado salad.

It depends on the speakers. I have never downloaded a song in my life, so I can't speak to the quality of digital downloads. But my CDs sound fantastic on my speakers.

Most of my Japanese women friends, even the ones who have lived abroad, are uncomfortable with hugging. The ones I tried to hug stood there like a statue, arms hanging at their side. And a kiss on the cheek? Forget it. I don't bother trying a hug anymore.
Posted in: In your experience, how do your Japanese friends of the opposite sex react when you try to give them a friendly hug or kiss on the cheek when you are greeting them or saying goodbye?

I saw this on TV last night. The women looked so stiff and formal. Those long dresses are so unfashionable. Just once, I'd like to see the emperor and empress give a departing princess or prince a hug and a kiss.

It's very unusual for a 6-year-old girl to come home from school and then go out again by herself. It's almost as if she promised someone she would come out and play with them. I wonder if the killer lives in the neighborhood and lured her off the street into his house, which is why no one saw her after she passed the athletics ground.

I certainly hope the losing side will accept the result without acrimony. Despite it being a divisive issue, I would hate to see it break up families or friendships.
