Ain't gonna resign

and there's nothing to feel guilty about, Ozawa said in a news conference which finished about 20 minutes ago.

At least, after months of more or less nothingness, politics in Japan has become interesting again. Interesting mainly because of the fear that the LDP will once again manage to pull a rabbit out of its hat and continue its increasingly incompetent reign.

Some already claim it's all a set up and that the LDP is guilty of the same thing anyway. "Why now?" was a question I heard. I doubt that there would be a huge shock to learn that the LDP and its buddies were behind the arrest. How else could they remain in power?

A quick check of the NYT site found nothing new about Ozawa or the DJP. Apparently, this is not very big news in the US.
