Our Man had a lovely, but hectic weekend and enjoyed meeting up with an old friend who pointed Our Man toward Raw Japan, the stab at a blog by those nice folk at Reuters. (Question to the pros at the dead tree press and the wire services: why don't you ever have hit counters on your sites - do you have something to hide?) Our Man reckons Reuters overwrites, but hey, what does he know? They are Reuters with a capital R. Because of this (the overwriting, not the capital R) they sadly don't qualify for Our Man's oft forgotten (by himself) BLOG OF THE WEEK. Instead, that honour goes to Green-Eyed Geisha. But that's not a very political blog, you say. True, but it is written by a foreign woman (remember them?) who works in a Japanese company. She's got things to say about her lot in life (check out her latest post here (about foreign women moaning about being unable to find a foreign date in Japan) and it ain't always pretty, but is usually interesting and rarely right-on. Remember - personal is political. You go girl! Tell it like it is.
