    "Men" like him repulse women and shame their families. No sensible woman woman would want children if they knew there was any chance they might be morally bankrupt clowns like these assemblymen. They contribute directly to the problem they want to solve (though working and other conditions certainly don't help).

    Japan_cynic: the motive is economic. AS we've seen, bankers will stop at nothing, and indeed are willing to do anything to increase their profits. The umber industry sees these ans makes plans to derive cheap profit for minimal effort. So, they are rightly sick in the head. It would be doing the world a favor to make an example out of them, once they are caught.

    Spahnmatthew: it says that we are all so sick and craven that we cannot comprehend much outside of money.

    As for my own thoughts: don't sell the lumber. Purify the wood, and renovate/improve these shrines with the wood from the trees. That way, everyone wins, except the criminals. The shrine gets rebuilt with the trees that have been a part of the shrine for so long, the trees don't get sold off to the highest bidder, and the local builders get work building the shrines. the lumber industry gets nothing. See? Win-Win.

    I think wontond was talking about the ceremonial get-up the priest is wearing. Also, look in Akihito's hand for the top hat. They are commenting on the actual picture, rather than the content of the story (yes, it's valid to do so).

    I feel sad for the police "occifer" in question...I mean, look at the kind of shaming he's getting (okay, he deserves it, but still).

    I could see this in other countries - think smokin' hot college coeds (or for fairness' sake, the ultra-toned captain of local college gymnastics team - you're welcome, ladies) helping you "get fit" and wearing ever more revealing brand name school gear. I smell sponsorship cash and ad revenue waiting to be had.

    Cleo is right. In fact, if I didn't think it was simple neglect, I could see the possibility of a deliberate attempt at helping the bears get out by whoever they have doing the shoveling. Nah, no sadistic plot, just gross incompetence. Bears should not be treated so lightly, even if they do spend a good part of the year asleep.

    I think some of the other posters hit the mark. If she has figured out how to control the weather and nature, I'm sure a number of other governments would really like to get in on that action. G'luck with that, and all.

    The only tablet that has a real chance against the iPad is the Fujitsu Q550, and that's only because they are going for the business market, and put in all the right features for such. Full disclosure: I own neither Fujitsu nor Apple products, but have literally no use for anything Apple puts out. Fujitsu...maybe, as the Q550 might well come in handy in an enterprise setting. As for this attempt by Sony, the little one is a mistake, and the bigger one isn't really offering anything new that other companies don't already have.

    NPR had Reagan's budget director on, and he was pretty clear that both sides are wrong (and both are lying to the middle class). I tend to agree. We can't do just taxes or just cuts, but we need to do both.

    Just what the Union folks don't need, another sideshow distraction.

    As for the pensions/healthcare/stuff: they get the pensions as a form of delayed wages. If they were doing the same job in the private sector, the theory goes, they would be making more, and contributing more. But because government pay is so low (contrary to popular belief, they are actually paid relatively low wages). The days of cushy government jobs is long over. Just ask my old mail delivery guy. he was making a decent paycheck, but they had cutbacks, and now we get a different guy making a small portion of what the UPS guy gets, and he doesn't get benefits. Any wonder half of my mail gets delivered wrong?

    As much as we Wisconsinites share your concern, America, you can keep your Michael Moore and your Sarah Palin. We don't want either of them.

    war dialing for lazy people. Or fanservice rules the universe? Ah, who cares. No one will remember this gimmick in 2 months anyway.

    is it wrong that I am tempted to satirically yell, "No JT, it's Best Dress-IST! Get it right!"?

    elbudamexicano - the "Cow"-pis has been fairly common since 2001, minimum. That's when I first heard people making jokes about it. maybe your ears are just better than most.

    "From Left: Japanese..." If left means liberal and right means conservative, do we have the proper spectrum?

    m5c32 - War (and combat in general) has often been described by combatants as being more erotically charged than sex. Tick put it well in his "war and the Soul", saying, "When we study the roots of war, we find this relentless darkside of eros at work." and "War transforms a combatant's relations to love and sex, and to beauty and order and form, in a way that compromises some of the most difficult dimensions of the survivor's inner world." both on p. 122, for those of you so inclined.

    Elbudamexicano's central point stands, even if his suggestion of a separate all-gay army is ridiculous. Let the military sort this out on their own. They have been better at integration than civilian society in most other things (religious integration and racial integration both happened in the military before they happened in the civilian world).

    Actually, the use of the courts to force this on an an uneasy military population will, in reality, lead to more recrimination, more discrimination, and more suffering for gays in the military. Expect more problems in the ranks if this trend continues. Why is it so hard for gays to wait for Sec. Gates to come out with his report? Why take it to the courts, who will hand down chaos in the wake of this ruling? The military is working on it, and will come out with a balanced, reasonable, gradual plan. But patience is clearly not a virtue for some people.
