I am still feeling disturbed and saddened by this terrible news.
My family's hearts and thoughts are with Mirei and her family. We all need to watch out for children more in this world no matter where or when.
I am strongly of the view though however that given the number of child abductions recently a six year old girl should not be walking the streets alone.

This is is disgusting but really nothing new here. Most Japanese men wouldn't be irked by these comments.

There is no third arrow.
Abe is a nationalist not an economist. Always was, always is and always will be.

Another thought bubble. A bit like PM Abe's 3rd arrow.
Mr Masuzoe will be a one term governor if he runs with this.

I'll never forget how Obama laughed off Mitt Romney's belief during the pre election debates that Russia would pose big problems for the west in the near future.

So punish the players, the opposing team, 99.99% of good fans, sponsors, people with part time jobs at the stadium, caterers etc...?
I'm dumbfounded. Surely the perpetrators are the ones who should be solely punished and a warning placed out and inside the stadium.

New building contracts will not go ahead in this business climate because construction companies fear if they take on big projects with lots of temporary and contracted workers they will have to lay them off and abandon the work when the economy tanks (and is beginning to tank again).
It's only the yakuza and their homeless recruits who are getting any of the real cleanup done around Fukushima.
