It’s not terribly often I get to see my own name in print; I’m usually on the air for under a minute, unarchived. But this time, Japan Today’s asked me to write a few editorials here and there for them. I was a regular newsie on their JPod podcast while that was going; do kind of miss going in and doing that every week. But without further adieu, you can read the main article here: Japan Today Editorial: Ishihara aims to go out with a bang, not a fizzle
The updated information is that the Japanese government has indeed agreed to trump Ishihara’s offer and buy the islands from the Saitama family; Japan jumping on a grenade to save itself from Ishihara. How odd.
