Suppose Our Man ought to post something for you good folk tuning in from work. Well, got nothing to offer right now other than more Japan Times observations. If you are sick of them, stop reading now.
Er, well if you don't subscribe to the paper you might have missed the Myanmar Independence celebration which the JT saw fit to promote with a full page (presumably paid for) article by the Myanmaresian Ambassador to Japan praising the place. Myanmar, you'll remember, is what the evil British colonialists used to call Burma, before it was freed to be the tinpot dictatorship it is now.
You wanna celebrate its independence by praising the dictators? Whose side are you on, Japan Times?
