Warning! Do NOT read

on a full stomach. A NYT journalist has done a report on Japan in which he seems to have believed everything he was told by representatives of the government. You'll learn how Japan's special love of nature is causing crow problems and how things would just be all gooder if we could return to the past. No, not as far back as when peasants were forced to supply the wonderfully kind samurai class with food, but at least before the crow problem got all out of hand due to Japan becoming a foreign country.

Check the blog Shisaku for the story and a link.

A barf bag might be advised when you read the NYT/IHT article. (Then again, you could die laughing, though if you pay taxes in Japan you probably won't.)
