Call me crazy but how about just saying, 'Hello' as an opener?

His hair and ashes should be disposed of completely so that there is nothing left of him at all, anywhere.

Not the greatest idea to schedule any international travel this year. I'm surprised that even 3,400 people are allowed in each week but I assume many are Japanese citizens returning to Japan.

Unfathomable pain and anguish for those who lost anyone in that tsunami but losing a young kid like that is the absolute worst. You'd always feel guilty that you couldn't have been there to help and protect them. Then there are the 2,000 or so bodies that were never found.

Still not close to the peak of 2,500 in one day. Let's hope it goes down again tomorrow. Still see a few idiots not wearing masks (including Westerners) in Tokyo.

Yes, it's newsworthy in that if you or someone you know had an allergic reaction to a vaccine but weren't told beforehand that others had had the same reaction, you might wish you had been told.

If you can prove mask wearing in Japan hasn't helped keep numbers down, then maybe some would listen. But while you are gathering your evidence, better to keep that mask on.

If it is true that people aren't dying in the hundreds or thousands each day due to Covid in Japan, then something is going right. The UK peaked at 1,820 deaths in one day in January (and has about half the population of Japan), the US peaked at about 4,400 deaths a day in January (and has 3 times the population of Japan) and Japan peaked at 108 deaths on one day in January. Those numbers are not even close to being in the same league. Let's hope those peaks are never eclipsed in the future.

Hated him for five years? Quite a twist on Veni, vidi, vici.

It all goes back to the old adage: women need a reason to have sex, men just need a place (or opportunity). Very sad and pathetic that some men would take advantage of a woman whose husband has just died, whether it be a disease, an accident or a tsunami. Those men know how disgusting/pathetic they themselves are, but still do such things.

If you think about it, Trump always loses in the end. Whether it's businesses he started, women he married, the popular vote (twice), supporters, lawyers, the list goes on.

It's well known that most college-educated people in the US tend to vote Democrat, not Republican, and it's not a coincidence. For the vast majority of graduates, for at least four years college forces them to think more about the US, her issues, and the world. It just can't be compared to only having completed high school.

Trump appeals to the uneducated; those who don't have higher order thinking skills. Racist people tend to be uneducated as well. Fix the education problem in the US and many things will be fixed.

So veterans should be immune from any criminal prosecution? No wonder they didn't win their extradition case. Somehow don't think these two will be getting bail (as Carlos may have arranged boxes to smuggle them out...!).

Yes, but it gets a bit harder for China to explain the real reason for a US Olympic boycott to her people. That's obviously one of the main reasons for it. If more Chinese people learn what is actually going on with the Uighurs in Xinjiang, then the government will feel pressure.

'That has raised suspicions of cronyism in a nation where plum jobs are often hard to come by without connections.'
Well, that sentence basically confirms that cronyism is necessary to get a 'plum job' so there isn't much to be suspicious about! It's the norm.

Yes, Donald, the Supreme Court ,'didn't want to do anything about it', because they know the election wasn't rigged. Luckily for the US and the world, you can't ever win an election with only 25-30% of voters supporting you. The more he talks and carries on, the more he helps the Dems.

Just go away you loser. You lost bigly. You should be put away and probably will be sooner rather than later.

The US hates Saudi Arabia, but just loves its oil. The US helps to create a bogeyman (Iran et al) so the Saudis have to spend a large chunk of their oil revenue on weaponry supplied by the US.
