Some words about why this blog is even here.
First, I've been reading The Japan Times for 20 years, so I figure I might have some things to say about it.
Second, although I only live about 250 kilometers from Niigata I get the Japan Times a day late. The date on the paper is right but the news is a day old. This annoys me and it is therapeutic to diss JT for this and for its content.
Finally, the paper is lousy as the official "English" paper in Japan and I would like to point out some of this lousiness and suggest ways the paper could be better.
Oh, post finally. It's also fun to blog.
