Shoichi Nakagawa dies

Apparently found dead at home by his wife just after 8 this morning. I don't know why, but I have always felt somewhat sorry for him. Asahi article (Japanese) here.

Not a good way to return to blogging...

1240: Article in English here. Apparently the whole world already knows about it.


  1. Tragic. More some as followed in his father's footsteps, CIA conspiracy theories aside.
    I seem to recall either Tobias Harris or MTC worrying over such an outcome as this just a few months ago...
    The poor man was obviously flawed, as we all are, and perhaps would have been better off out of public scrutiny.
    This serves to remind that for all the gaffs and blunders of those in power in Japan, they are, when all is said and done, merely normal men haunted by their own demons as well as those of the country.

  2. Very true.

    I haven't seen anything so far (1100Pm) regarding the cause of death.
